Fluids


they always say a little honey, a little tea, a little lemon, but best of all lots of fluids (juice and water to avoid dilutional effect) to liquefy secretion and cough up easier.

Productive cough


The value of productive coughing is the clearing of unwanted materials from the respiratory tract. Curing it beneficially would be by alleviating the primary cause. If this is viral, it should clear up by itself. If you smoke, STOP. You can suppress cough with a variety of compounds containing dextromethorphan, but this will also inhibit clearing of materials that may be beneficial

Find the cause


there are varied causes of nonproductive cough. Most common is allergic rhinitis, but not far behind is an undiagnosed asthma or reactive airways. Then there is GERD, and there is even a parasite that can cause it (called in perpetual copulation state, lol) found in the upper airway, but rare. Treating the cause is the best. Use of cough suppressant is resorted to for comfort. So go to your MD.

Dry Cough


Many people are plagued by an intermittent cough that is really a complex issue with pharyngeal muscles and hypersensitivity of the cough reflex. This problem is persistent and hard to eradicate. In other cases, the cough can be due to certain drugs - such as ACE inhibitors - you might be taking for blood pressure or cardiac problems. You might want to discuss the issue with your doctor.

 Chronic cough COPD Cough Premature Productive cough Sputum

Time to see doc...


Having productive cough for 2 months is not normal. Smokers may have chronic cough and can have some sputum, especially early in AM. If this is something new for you, definitely should have it checked out. If a smoker, you may have COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and treatment is likely needed. Don't wait until things get too severe as treatment become less effective. Good luck

Cough and antibiotic


There can be a lot of reasons for a cough. Since you are not a smoker the most likely is that this is indeed an infection. Your doctor will try to evaluate if this is a viral illness or a bacterial problem. It sounds like you need to be seen.

Does thyroid cancer cause a productive cough?

Answered by:
Dr. John Yim

Not usually.


Thyroid cancer grows outside of the windpipe and therefore almost never causes a productive cough. However, in the extremely rare event that it invades the windpipe this could result in a productive, possibly bloood tinged cough. Other possible causes of a cough could be if the cancer invades the nerve to the vocal cord which helps protect from aspiration.

See advice below.


Use saline nose drops and suction the mucus from the nose as often as needed (if he can blow his nose, do that after saline drops). Also,elevate the head of the crib or bed. If your doctor OK's it, use a humidifier in the room during sleep. Cold and cough meds are proven not to help and can cause severe side effects. If these actions don't help enough, he needs to see his doctor.

Maybe a cold, but...


If it's just been a few days and he is drinking well, not running a high fever, and acting pretty well it may be a cough with a cold, and should start to improve in a few days. But, if he is having rapid or labored breathing, coughing often, high fever, acting weak, or drinking poorly it would warrant being seen soon. Also, if he's a young infant most people would recommend he be checked.
