try steam inhalations with vicks
apply nilgiri oil on hanky and inhale
drink warm water
keep a piece of pepper in the mouth,it will stop the bout of cough.
use "talishadi powder" 1/2 tsp 3 times a day with water or honey and milk(pls do not drink water on honey)
avoid ac,direct fan,direct wind.
stay in a clean environment
avoid fried,spicy and junk food

Welcome to Healthcaremagic Forum,
This seems to be Allergic bronchitis, change the pillow cover everyday before going to sleep and keep the room clean. Do steam inhalation 2-3 times/day and drink plenty of warm water, if the cough does not reduce please do consult your physician.

Take care
