Are there any home remedies for a dry cough?
There are a couple of things you can do at home to help ease your dry cough, and they can be done at the same time as taking your cough syrup.
We recommend getting plenty of rest when you have a cough, as it’s often caused by a cold or the flu or another infection which all need some serious rest if you’re going to get over them as soon as possible.
You should also drink plenty of fluids, as this will help to keep the back of your poor irritated throat hydrated.
We’d also recommend trying a hot honey and lemon drink, which may help to soothe your throat and make that cough a little better.
Do I have a dry cough or a chesty cough?
There are two common types of cough, a dry, tickly cough and a chesty, mucus cough, and they’re pretty easy to tell apart.
If you have a dry cough you won’t produce any mucus or phlegm when you cough.
On the other hand, if you have a chesty cough you’ll bring up phlegm when you have a good coughing session.
Different types of cough need different types of cough medicine, which is why there are so many available.
Which dry cough remedy is suitable for children?
Dry cough medicines are available for children aged 3 months and over.
These cough medicines often contain an ingredient called glycerin or glycerol, which coats the back of the throat, soothing and lubricating the area and reducing your little one’s dry cough in the process.
Glycerin cough medicines are available from popular brands like Benylin, CalCough, and Tixylix, so you’ll be sure to find one that’s right for your child.
If you’re not sure which cough syrup will be suitable for your child for any reason, ask your doctor or pharmacist for some advice.
Which cough syrup do I need?
Choosing the right cough medicine can be as irritating as the cough itself.
There are lots of different types to choose from - treatments tailored for tickly and chesty coughs, to medicines designed to be taken at night and during the day.
It’s important to recognise the type of cough that you have - is it dry or chesty? Does it trouble you more at night or during the day?
If you’re struggling to understand the type of cough you have, speak to a pharmacist and they will be able to help you choose a suitable treatment.
