Question by  Debidoo (1)

What is the best treatment for a dry cough besides cough medicine?

I have a barky cough but no other symptoms.


Answer by  Aubs (1089)

Try sucking on throat lozenges or hard candy. Often times, that will stifle the coughing reflex. However, a barky, consistent cough can be a bad sign, so if it continues longer than a few weeks, consult your doctor.

Dry cough that lasts more than four weeks may be tuberculosis. If this is your case do not play with the health of others. The transmission is very easy and attack those on a low immune system.

Usually caused by a dry and itchy throat so I suggest you can take lozenges and drink hot tea, and gurgle with warm water with salt 3 times a day.
