The lungs are exposed to approx 7000 liters of air per day which carries microbes and suspended particulate matter which cause respiratory infections. Cough is a natural way to clear the lungs and remove phlegm from them, it may also be the first sign that highlights the suffering experienced by respiratory system due to environmental pollution. Cough is one of the ways by which the body drives out excess mucus from the lungs and throat. The air passage of our body is lined with cells secreting the mucus that traps dust. When the cells get irritated there is an increase in the secretion leading to the blockage of the passage. This blockage causes coughing as a reflex action to remove the excess mucus.
Affecting people of all age groups, cough can be acute or chronic depending on its duration. Causes of cough varies from infection (both viral and bacterial), environmental irritants, smoking, Asthma, Chronic bronchitis, GERD, post nasal drip to even psychogenic causes. This minor symptom if not treated properly can lead to more serious health problems. Catarrhal affections of the upper air passages, bronchitis, asthma, pthisis are typical medical conditions leading to cough.

Things you need to know about Cough Treatment
- There are many types of cough medications with different action; expectorants (increase mucous, phlegm and works by loosening, thinning it), antitussives (suppress cough), antihistamines (mild sedation), decongestants (relieve nasal congestion)
- Many over-the-counter (OTC) cough treatments mix a suppressant and expectorant with medicines to cover other symptoms. That could include an a decongestant, antihistamine and a pain reliever. This mixture can be a good thing if you have a range of cold symptoms, like coughs, body aches, and congestion. The flipside is that you may get medicine you don’t need.
- Camphor and Menthol are natural treatments which you rub on your throat and chest if in ointment form . You can also get them in liquid form to use with a vaporizer, a gadget that makes steam you can breathe in Their strong-smelling vapors may ease your cough and open up your stuffy head but not recommended for children
- Cough suppressants and antihistamines are used to dry up coughs, so don’t use them along with a mucus-loosening medicine. Drinking up to 8 glasses of water a day is another way to thin mucus.
- Direct expectorants are also used to dissolve coughs and they work by inhaling steam from hot water to which certain herbs, such as eucalyptus, ginger and chamomile have been added
- Honey is not a very useful cough treatment contrary to popular belief, a Cochrane review found that it was no better than a placebo. On the downside Honey’s use as a cough treatment has been linked on several occasions to infantile botulism and as such should not be used in children less than one year old.
- An expectorant is often one of the ingredients and works by loosening thinning it and clearing mucus and phlegm from the lungs, bronchi, and trachea. When giving kids an expectorant, administer it on its own.
- Regular allopathic medications are contra indicated for BP and depression and not safe. Dextromethorphan can affect drugs that treat depression. Also, some combination cold and cough medicines contain decongestants, which can raise your blood pressure.
