Suggest remedy for hoarseness with cough

I have a cough and was sneezing a lot, but that has eased up some. But now I can hardly talk....my voice is not good. Very broken up. I don t feel too bad, just want to lay around. I don t feel congested, not blowing my nose, mostly the cough and voice thing.

Hello,

The symptoms of hoarseness of voice and cough are suggestive of infection of the larynx and lower respiratory tract.
Kindly do the following to overcome it.
1. Do salt water gargling thrice daily.
2. Take steam inhalation twice daily.
3. Take antihistaminic medication tablet Levocetirizine once a day.
4. Take decongestant syrup containing Bromhexine and Phenylephrine 5mL thrice a day.
5. Take a course of antibiotics containing Azithromycin once a day for 3 days.
6. Avoid consumption of cold items like cool drinks and ice creams.

Gradually, your symptoms should subside and you should be back to normal.

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

Regards,
Dr. Ashakiran S
