If this cough is linked to a cold or flu, it is possible that the mucus produced by the infection is too thick and sticky to be eliminated by coughing. When this happens, it accumulates in the lungs and feels oppressive.
The cough could also be triggered by irritation and inflammation in the throat or upper part of the lungs and the more you are irritated, the more you cough.
In either of those cases, you have two excellent choices: Soothing Cough Syrup or Bronchosan from A.Vogel.
The Soothing Cough Syrup is made from a Spruce bud extract that helps liquefy mucus, making it easier to eliminate. It also soothes irritations, particularly in the throat. Bronchosan has a very similar effect but its action is more effective for lung issues. Soothing Cough Syrup is sweetened with honey and cane sugar and therefore not suitable for diabetics.
Bronchosan is an ethanol extract that contains very small amounts of alcohol, but should still be avoided by recovering alcoholics.
Taking Echinaforce from A.Vogel with one of those cough remedies will help fight the infection, thus reducing mucus production.
Drink at least 2 litres of water per day, to help dissolve the mucus. Avoid mucus forming foods such as dairy products, bananas and grains (ex. wheat, oat, corn...), until you are feeling a lot better.
If your cough has nothing to do with a cold or flu, consult your doctor to verify the cause. Once you receive a diagnosis, we can send you information accordingly.
