Cough (Definition)

The cough reflex is a protective mechanism that uses muscles in your throat and chest to expel mucous and saliva that may contain pathogens that would otherwise possibly be inhaled via aerosol or to expel pathogens infecting the throat and respiratory system. Cough benefits the host by reducing load and benefits the pathogen which may then spread via aerosol. ...Read more

Can hylands cough and cold be combined with benadryl (diphenhydramine)?

Can hylands cough and cold be combined with benadryl (diphenhydramine)?

Maybe (not). . .: Hyland's is a brand of homeopathic remedies (http://www. Hylands. Com/products/adult), none of which exactly match name you mentioned, so it's trickier to determine which you are referencing. Regardless, given that most ingredients are 6-12x (http://en. Wikipedia. Org/wiki/homeopathic_dilutions), it's doubtful that there's anything present to interact w/benadryl (diphenhydramine).

How to cure cough and cold?

How to cure cough and cold?

Viral infection: Unfortunately, there is no cure for viral infection, such as the common cold. But you can take antihistamine and decongestant to help with the symptoms. The most important thing is to stay hydrated and get plenty of rest so that your body's immune system can fight the virus off. Home remedies such as warm ginger tea with a touch of honey or taking zinc 75 to 150 mg a day may help also.

How can I cure cough and cold?

Time: Colds are viruses that the body must clear over time. What you can do is symptomatic relief with decongestants and cough medicines. It typically takes 5-7 days for the body to take care of the virus, but cough can sometimes persist for longer.

How to cure cough and cold natural way?

How to cure cough and cold natural way?

Time: There really isn't a way to "cure" a cold because it's caused by a virus. Your body will kill it off within 7-14 days. You can help with the symptoms in many ways. Raw honey can help with cough and sore throat. Nasal saline spray or neti-pot can help with the nasal congestion symptoms.

My son is sick 40tn days cough and cold?

My son is sick 40tn days cough and cold?

Question?: Your question, I guess, is what to do next. That depends on the child's medical status, & previous history. In general, most viral infections last 7-10 days in children. So if there is no fever, trouble breathing, lethargy, irritability, vomiting, or appearing ill, then wait a few more days. If the child continues having symptoms, or if any of the above occur, see your doctor.

I'd really like to know how to cure cough and cold?

No cure...: There is no cure for the common cold, which can cause cough and fever. It is usually due to a viral infection so symptoms are treated while the infection runs its course, usually over several days to a week or so. See your doctor if symptoms are severe or worsening over time.

Is it really necessary to take the medicine of cough and cold or no in 1 week its gone?

Cough and cold: Over the counter medications for coughs and colds may help a person feel better while waiting for the viral illness itself to resolve. For most people with a viral respiratory infection, no medication is necessary and may cause harm through side effects. There are exceptions, of course.
