What can I do if I have a bad cough and have a job interview tomorrow?

Honey or codeine.: The use of a teaspoon of honey is often helpful to soothe the irritation caused by a post nasal drip cough.

I have a bad cough and now bad kidney pain what should I do?

Cough: First I would ask if you have a temperature or if you cough is productive?

I would strongly suggest that you are seen by you doctor and have a really good exam. In the meantime rest, drink plenty of fluids. ...Read more
