Hello doctor,

Since four days, I am having severe cough. What should I do? Please guide.



Welcome to

If you have cough with white or greenish sputum, then you can take syrup Koflet (Liquorice Root, Holy Basil, Honey) (from Himalaya pharma) 2 tsp thrice a day with lukewarm water. If there is only dry cough or allergic cough, then you can take syrup Jufex Forte (Amla, Pippali, Ginger, Vasaka)(Aimil pharma) 2 tsp thrice a day with lukewarm water. Avoid ice cream, cold drinks, rice, curd and other cold food items. Always drink lukewarm water. Home remedy is to prepare a decoction by mixing five tulsi leaves, 0.11 oz of dry ginger powder, and a few black peppers in a glass of water and boil it till it reduces to half. Take this decoction twice daily. Also, take a piece of licorice in the mouth.
