In brief: Probably not...
Treatment of a cough depends on the etiology of the cough.
Thus, diagnosing a cough requires an evaluation by a physician. Then, your physician can render the correct treatment for the cough! coughs have many etiologies which often require different treatments. Treating a cough yourself can be harmful and serious disease can be missed by not seeing a doctor!
