How to stop a cough from progressing?

Postby Phatferd » Tue Mar 27, 2007 7:06 pm

I am developing a sore throat and cough. This is not good because I am on Spring Break and will be going to Mexico on Thursday. I don't expect to miraculously make it go away, but I was wondering if there is a way to maintain it from getting worse?

Does Airborn work? Anything? Thanks.

It's tough to shake if you're already showing symptoms but here are two things that WILL help at least:

1. Rest
2. Water - 10-12 glasses a day

A multi-vitamin will probably help more than Airborne or ColeEeze.

Definitely don't smoke, and don't drink... much. A few beers may do more harm than good but downing a bottle of jack might help a lot:-b

Cough drops also help me alot. That along with what Coppermine said and I'd think you'd be good to go. You have a couple days to rest up before you leave too which is good.

No self-gratification either; remember, you need your fluids
