Brief Answer:
Grilinctus.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting the query to HCM,

If it is only dry cough then you can take Syr. Grilinctus 5ml 3 times a day for 5 days.

If you are suffering from cough with sputum then it is usually due to infection. For which you will need the antibiotics. Which can be prescribe by your gynaecologist.


Any issue do follow up.
Take care.
