How to Treat a cough from a cold or the flu?

You can’t cure colds or the flu, most are viral infections, but you can relieve the cough and sore throat that sometimes comes with them. 

• Drink up. Sipping on drinks will keep your throat moist and comfortable. When your throat doesn't hurt, you may not cough. Just about any drink is OK except alcohol or caffeinated drinks. Those can dry you out. Also avoid orange juice and other citrus drinks if they bother your throat. 

• Heat up that drink. Sip some warm tea or soup to heat up your airways. Not only will it hydrate you, but the warmth helps break up mucus and makes it easier to cough up. 

• Use natural cough medicine. Ayusas cough syrup can help you cough up mucus. Cough suppressants reduce your urge to cough. If you're not sure which kind you need, ask your doctor or pharmacist. 

• Try steam inhalations. If a raw, dry throat is making you cough, moisture may help. Try breathing in steam from a hot shower. Or use a humidifier or vaporizer in your room while you sleep. The steam can keep your nose and throat from being too dry and get rid of that back-of-the-throat tickle. The moisture can also ease your breathing and loosen mucus, helping you cough it up.

• Avoid dirty air. You know smoke isn’t good for you, but it’s especially bad when you're sick. It can really irritate your cough. Don't smoke, and stay away from others who are smoking.

• Rest. If you want to get rid of your cold and cough, you need to take it easy. Your body needs energy to fight off the virus. Push yourself too hard and it will just exhaust you and stress you out. That can make your cold, cough, and sore throat hang around longer. 

• Gargle with salt water. Mix a teaspoon of salt in 250 ml of warm water and gargle. Do it several times a day. Alternatively use the Ayusas lemon and herb-salt herbal drops.
