Home remedy for dry cough
June 14, 2017 10:19am CST
this morning, I woke up with a dry throat with a cheaty cough that hurts so much when I tried to swallow my saliva. I did tried to gurgle salt water, a mixture of salt with lukewarm water to ease the pain but to no avail. The best way to find immediate solution is the internet since there wasn't any transport available , everyone went out to work in the morning. Anyway, visiting the doctor may cost me at least $70 per visit. Hence, I decided to try my luck on home remedy for dry cough. This method worked out well to ease the cough frequency. Bring to boil 2 cups of water, mix in slices of raw ginger, squeeze out the lemon or lime juice into it and allow to boil until it reduced to a cup. Then stir in honey, drink slowly to allow the drink to touch the irritating throat wall. After drinking 3x, I felt better. What is your home remedy for cough?

Dry cough is never fun! Sorry to hear you're not feeling well and I hope you get better soon. Sometimes it is better to administer home remedies than rely on commercial OTCs because of side effects. My personal home remedy for a dry cough is lemon green tea with honey or ginger tea with honey. And I avoid salty and sweet foods until I kick the dry cough away. And of course plenty of water and rest.
