Dear Customer, Thanks for providing quick additional information.
I can understand your concern.
The possible causes of your cough could be asthma
. Also certain allergies can exacerbate asthma or bronchitis.
Cough occurs due to irritation of the throat tissues either by infections or by other irritants.
The commonest causes of a dry cough are viral
infection, asthma, heartburn and acid reflux, postnasal drip, bronchitis, anemia and certain drugs.
You should take Antihistamines
like Alavert 10 mg once a day.
Also you should do Menthol steam inhalation, As Menthol salts are available OTC, you can use them. You should do this three times daily .
You should take Robitussin Cold & Cough. It contains dextromethorphan
, guaifenesin, and pseudoephedrine
Dextromethorphan is a cough suppressant.
Guaifenesin is an expectorant. Pseudoephedrine is a decongestant. It can be taken in dosage of 10mL with a maximum of 4 doses in 24 hours.
You should sleep propped up rather than flat. Also sip cold water from time to time during the day to dilute the acid and cool the stomach tissues.
You should get these tests done-
Chest x-ray, Complete blood count.
And in addition, a short course of systemic
corticosteroid therapy may be given and has been proven to be effective.
Also Albuterol and guaifenesin products treat cough related symptoms.
