In brief: Over the counter med

For a light cough, one might try over the counter cough med such as Robitussin (guaifenesin)-DM for a dry cough or Robitussin (guaifenesin) CF for a productive cough.
If associated with fever, wheezing, shortness of breath, or persists and worsens, then see one's doc
