Treatment for allergy cough

Since coughing in general does not mean there is a problem; coughing beneficial for your body. However, if the same persists for more then two weeks and it gets worse at nights, it is a sign that you do need medical attention right away.

Only after a doctor’s examination will you be able to determine its exact cause and the treatment.

However water and other juice liquids are often some of the best cough remedies. These juices help to soothe the throat and moisten the mucus so it can be coughed up easily without pain.

You can also make a cough syrup at home by mixing one part lemon juice with two parts of honey. This can be used as often as you need. This home made cough syrup can be given to children from up to 1 year old.

There are also two most common types of cough medicines:

* Expectorants – this syrup helps the mucus make it easy to cough up.

* Suppressants – this syrup controls the cough reflex and works best on a dry cough that keeps you awake at night. However, very important to note is not to suppress a productive cough.

Allergy cough can be very challenging and at the same time painful. Always consult a doctor before taking any medications as they may end up causing you more harm them benefit.

Allergy cough can be kept under control just as the seasonal allergies with proper care and medications. This cough can be prevented if you avoid getting an allergy and stay away from allergens as much as possible.
