Upper respiratoy tract infection. Cough, phlegm, fever. Natural remedy?

I think I have an upper respiratory tract infection. My throat is not sore, but lots of phlegm sitting there. I am coughing slightly, and this usually turns into a fever or bad cough. I tend to have this a few times a year. I tried to heal myself with natural remedies. My question to you is how can I get rid of this infection once and for all? And is there something I can do naturally to get rid of it?

Hello and Welcome to HCM,
Thanks for writing to us.
Drink plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration, which also moistens the nose and sinus membranes.
An air humidifier to keep the air moist will assist in keeping the nose and sinus membranes moist.
Cool mist humidifiers may be a better option.
Acetaminophen or ibuprofen may be used to relieve minor fevers or facial soreness.
Hope this helps you.
Wishing you good health...

First of all thank you so much for writing to us.Take a teaspoon honey every morning before food. There is a procedure in ayurveda called "Nasya" Where you can clear all upper respiratory tract ailments and thereby clear phlegm easily. Consult an ayurvedic specialist nearby for further queries

Take care and have a nice time.
