Hello,my name is dr.Dorina Gurabardhi.Welcome to HCM.Some adivices tha i can give to you are:
-Drinking fluids helps to thin out the mucus.
It also helps to keep mucous membranes moist. This is particularly helpful in winter, when houses tend to be dry, another cause of cough.
-Try a menthol cough drop,It numbs the back of the throat, and that will tend to decrease the cough reflex.
-A hot shower can help a cough by loosening secretions in the nose.
-Humidifiers may also help.
- Remove Irritants From the Air like perfumes ore smoke
-Take decongestants: thay come in pills, liquids, and nasal sprays under many brand names. Look for phenylephrine or pseudoephedrine as the active ingredient in decongestants taken by mouth
-Use cough suppressants and expectorants: If you’re coughing so much that your chest hurts and you’re getting a bad night’s sleep, consider a cough suppressant such as dextromethorphan.
Hope my answer was helpful.If you have another question I'll be glad to answer.Thanks!
