  • in ayurveda dry cough occurs when the cough in the body is dried up due to excessive heat or may be due to infection etc..

    so take a piece of Yesti/Jyest Madhu (a root of a tree) and chew it with sugar till all the juice is extracted from that this thrice a day

    with this take turmeric powder with honey in a glass of hot milk daily twice

    following the above instructions for 3 to 4 days will relieve you from dry cough

  • For the dry cough,When you find it itching,You should drink feelable hot water in such a way that it touches that itching and dried area.
    Take 3to 4 pieces of garlics,fry it in sesame oil and eat continiuosly for 3 days.
    You can also boil 7 peices of garlic and along with 1 cup of milk,you should drink it before going to sleep.

    Take 2 pinches of pepper powder,mix it with equal amount of honey and eat it.Though it will be spicy it is a good antibiotic.

    There is this ayurvedic syrup named "HEDERAL"MADE OUT OF A PRODUCT CALLED HEDERAL HELIX(A BIOLOGICAL NAME).This syrup also you can drink,which may be avalable in nearby ayurvedic shops.

  • Take a cyrup named "COFDEX"

  • For the dry cough, it causes due to low resistance power in your body in the sense your body immune system is somewhat weak so must have healthy foods. and also for the remedy you can have in ayurveda medicine,add 4 to 5 pepper, 3 betal leaf, 3 pieces of garlic, handful 'thoothuvalai leaves' nd thippili to a boiling water and let it boils to a concentrated liquid and have it for 3 times a day.

    its a means of quick releif which i found it in my own experience.

  • Hai Aravind,

    For dry cough if you prefer home remedy, then I would strongly recommend three treatments.

    1.Gargle with the hot water mixed with salt in it. Add Plenty of salt,Just a pinch is not enough.(This is the best remedy for most of the throat problems)

    2.To push out all the dry cough out of your body , you can inhale steam.I think you know the process.Let me explain you anyway. Put few drops of Eucalyptus Oil to very hot water and cover yourself with bedspread without any gap,Your position must be in such a way that your nose inhales the steam from the mixture.It is Difficult but effective.

    3.Drink Milk mixed with Turmeric Powder and Pepper Powder in it.

    By following these Steps you will defenitely Get Well Soon.These steps have given me best results.

    And my kind advice is ,"Please dont use tablets often for cold (Like Erythrocine.. etc.,) as they may lead to Kidney Failure."

    With Regards

  • As you have itch in throat, I suspect some allergy,so take 10 mg cetrizine tablet twice a day (BD). For dry cough, better you take lozenges containing dextromethorphan such as Chericof Lozenges (Ranbaxy). Also you take a NSAID drug (such as Nimesulide) for subsiding inflammation around your vocal cord to improve your voice hoarseness.

  • Initially, the patient may be given some cough medicines to control the frequent bouts of cough. However, to completely cure chronic dry cough, it is very essential to find the root cause of the problem. Only then, it would be possible for a patient to recover fully from having chronic cough. For instance, if the person has cough variant asthma, he/she would be treated in the way asthma patients are treated. Another example would be if a person has gastroesophageal reflux, he/she would be given medications for this and also would have to follow a strict diet as well as change in lifestyle, which includes avoiding foods containing high fats, alcohol, smoking, chocolate, etc.
    Chronic dry cough would surely decrease, once its cause is understood. If a person is suffering from chronic dry cough for a long time, it is important to visit the health practitioner, before the underlying problem aggravates leading to grievous situations.
