Congested chest&sticky phlegm in throat, best home remedies to bring quick relief? For adults? For children?
Lots of fluids!: Extra fluids may help. Make your own cough medicine by using 1 part tea, 1part honey, and l part lemon juice. An "expectorant" is an over-the-counter medication which may help to liquify mucous secretions and make them easier to cough up. Don't give honey to babies under one year old. And it goes without saying that a non-smoking environment will be helpful to everyone. Good luck. Lgromkomd. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Everytime my son catches cold and cough, his cough heals very late.Please suggest an effective cough syrup or medicine?
The safest thing to : Do is see his pediatrician, as your son may have reactive airway disease or mild asthma. Upper respiratory infections can trigger bronchial spasms in people with these conditions, requiring medications called bronchodilators. It's always wise not to suppress coughs in children, except maybe at night for more restful sleep, but only if his doctor okays a medication with dextromethorphan. ...Read more

I had TB. Now iam pregnant.i have taken treatment for 6mon. Now iam sufferring with cough. Should it transfer to my baby?
Worries: The way I read your question is if it is possible for you to transmit tb to the baby, assuming that is the cause for your cough. I would suggest that you address first the cause of your cough. While still possible that tb is at the root, other causes are possibly involved from bronchitis to pneumonia to name a few. It would be critical to treat yourself first . Seek immediate medical attention. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hard to treat: Cough is a basic reflex that keeps us alive. The airway is the most sensitive part of the body for a reason. It keeps food out of our lungs. When the airway is irritated, there is no way to tell the body to ignore it. If the cause of the airway irritation can be found and treated, that can help the cough resolve sooner. Mucus draining down the throat is a common cause of prolonged cough. ...Read more

Likely viral illness: It is indeed winter time and colds/flu are everywhere. If baby is not having fever and still feeding, sleeping well, and urinating/stooling normally, no treatment needed.
