If it is only dry cough (nothing is coming out when coughing), you can take dextromethorphan tablet or syrup 10 mg eight hourly. Drink lukewarm water. Do saltwater gargles. Drink as much water as you can drink throughout the day.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
