How can you stop coughing?
A few home remedies
to help you heal
If you’re looking for natural ways to relieve your cough, a clinically proven cough syrup like Prospan® by Helixia® is a great option. These are also great ways to help kick your cough to the curb
Staying hydrated helps thin the mucus in your throat. Opt for warm liquids like broth or tea, which have a pleasant soothing effect.
Keep the air humid
A steamy shower is not only comforting, but also a way to add moisture to the air. Consider getting a vaporizer as well.
Suck on lozenges or hard candies
This can help relieve a dry cough and soothe a sore throat. (Avoid with kids under 6, as hard candies are a choking hazard.)
Avoid tobacco smoke
It’s best to do this at all times, but especially when you have a cough, as smoking or breathing second-hand smoke can make your cough worse.
