In brief: Cough

When given accurately, homeopathic remedies in 30c potency can often help acute symptoms of cough & congestion.
Bryonia alba helps with coughs that go down into the chest -- & cough is dry, hard, & painful. Patient holds onto the chest. Causticum has dry, irritated cough -- worse from laughing, talking, or any sort of air friction. It's a main remedy for bronchitis. Coccus cacti: paroxysms.

In brief: Cough

Basically you want to boost your immune system. Examples are selenium, coenzyme q10, and oscillococcinum which is a homeopathic medicine.
Ofcourse, consult your doctor first.
