You should take antitussive cough syrup containing dextromethorphan like Hold DM, many are available OTC. Chewing liquorice can help to stop cough. Ginger tea, salt water gargles , soups and chicken stock would be beneficial.

Hope this helps.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
