HOME REMEDIES & TIPS FOR YOUR COUGH WORTH TRYING

From making your own cough syrup with honey to taking a hot shower, there are many simple remedies and solutions for you to try out at home as you grapple with that itchy throat and irritating cough.

SIMPLE REMEDIES THAT MAY HELP WITH YOUR COUGH

1. Honey
Syrups or drinks containing honey may help soothe a sore throat and provide relief from cough.1,2 The World Health Organisation suggests trying tea with honey and lemon for relief from cough and sore throat.1 Honey must not be given to babies under the age of 1 year, due to the risk of a bacterial infection known as infant botulism.1

2. Drink fluids
Drinking plenty of fluids may help break up congestion, moisten the throat, ease a dry cough and prevent dehydration.3-7 A hot drink may help to moisten and soothe the upper airways; it can also have a psychological benefit by providing a feeling of comfort.8 Colds often irritate the airways, and a saltwater gargle may be soothing.4

3. Hot shower
Although there is no clinical evidence to support a benefit of humidifying the air, there is no harm trying.9 It is possible that dry air may further irritate a sore throat and cough, and you might want to use a cool-air humidifier or vapouriser to eliminate dry air. Or, try taking a steamy shower.3-5

4. Sweet pastilles or lozenges
Sucking on a sweet pastille or lozenge may also provide some relief from sore throat or cough.3,5 Avoid giving these to small children as they may choke.3,5 Always check the label on any product before giving it to a child.

5. Get plenty of rest
A cough can disrupt your sleep and leave you feeling exhausted.10 Rest as long as you continue to feel tired, and sleep as much as you can.4

6. Avoid tobacco smoke
Smoking or breathing second-hand smoke may make your cough worse, so it is best to avoid it.3

7. Avoid triggers
If you have allergies or asthma, removing allergens from your home may help you feel more comfortable.11 For example, during the pollen season, using air conditioning to filter the air can help minimise your exposure to pollen, dust and other irritants.

HOW PANADOL HELPS

If the home remedies are not producing the desired effect, take Panadol Cough & Cold*.

 

Panadol Cough and Cold* has a multi-ingredient formula that relieves symptoms of cold and flu, with an emphasis on coughs. It contains:

 

Paracetamol for pain-relieving and fever-reducing actions.

 

Phenylephrine hydrochloride, a decongestant to relieve nasal congestion.

 

Guaifenesin, an expectorant for chesty coughs, or

 

Dextromethorphan for cough relief.

 

*For more detailed information, please refer to the local product labelling or leaflet. In case of doubt, please seek medical advice. Your pharmacist or doctor can help advise on the most appropriate treatments for you. If your symptoms persist or worsen, you should consult your doctor.

RECOMMENDED PANADOL FOR COUGH

Panadol Cough and Cold*

Take only as directed and always refer to label before use.

 

Do not take with any other products that contain the same active ingredient(s). Taking products containing any of the same active ingredients together may lead to an overdose. Immediate medical advice should be sought in the event of an overdose, even if you feel well.

Coughing varies in severity and under certain circumstances may require you to consult your doctor. If you are suffering from any of the following, you should seek medical attention:3,12-14

2. You are coughing up thick, greenish-yellow phlegm, or wheezing.

3. You have a fever that does not go away, refuses to come down despite medication, or a fever with rash.

4. You have difficulty breathing, feel short of breath, or are experiencing pain in the chest or abdomen.
