Help!I have a horrible cough.What can I do to make it stop?

Report as

no seriously... I know the way you can really get rid of it. My stepfather had this issue for like 3 weeks and he couldnt take specific things bc he is diabetic. You need to get olive oil and oil of oregano. The only places to find oregano oil is in like a health food store orvitamin store. Put the olive oil in a cap that you get cough syrup in and fill it with the olive oil then you add three drops of oregano oil to the mix. lather the mixture all over your feet and put socks on. You can also put a little on your chest and neck. I know this sounds weird,but I swear it really does work. Google cold home remedies and oil of oregano. My stepfather had a cold so bad he was throwing up and that night he put the mixture on, he didn't cough once the whole night. Seriously. Try it. Its even safe for you to use a few times a day. Oregano oil can be used for the treatment of anything from acne to warts and everything in between!! Seriously. your be better in a day!!!! feel better soon.

You can stop the cough you are having by taking a spoonful of honey or lemon juice. If you have a dry cough you should get an antitussive cough medicine while for a wet cough you should get an expectorant cough medicine. You should also consult your doctor before taking any of these medications.

my grandmother always gave us Robitussin for every cough we even thought about getting. It and Dr. Tichenor's cured every disease known to mankind that we had already discovered or that they haven't even come up with yet. I bet it could even cure cancer according to my Granny ;) Hope you were smart like I was and went to a real doctor instead of listening to some old lady and her crazy old school doctoring. Although laughter is always the best medicine or so they say! Hope you feel better soon ;)

1 tsp. of organic apple cider vinegar, place in mouth, gargle with it and if you can handle it, swallow it. Repeat throughout the day, but after the first swallow no need to swallow again ....just gargle with it.

1. Drink hot water. 2. Refuse gee or other oily things. 3. Go to market buy a small bottle of liquid medicine for cough. Mix medicine with a cup of hot water and drink slowly. After this go to bed and sleep for 4 hours. Never drive or go to walk after take medicine.

(B.O.L.) best of lock.

going to the doctor is a great idea however that is what everyone would do, but what you should do is if possibly go to a place like texas or not spend a few days taking nightqill and dayqill and drink a lot of tea(personally i favor caramel).

The Doctor is in.

Sure fire way to stop coughing: Quit breathing. Guaranteed to work.

Side effects may vary but can include dizziness, blacking out, strange looks, loss of friends and employment, coughing, brain aneurysm, bad credit, long lines at grocery store, anal leakage, and death.

If any of these persist see a physician and don't believe everything you read on the internet.

This is a public service announcement reminding you to drink water, rest and only take Nyquil when close to a bed.

Cheers

If you are trying to cough up mucus, eat some raw onions, if needed on a hamburger or hot dog. Take some deep breaths and get the fumes down into your lungs for a natural way to thin out the mucus.

First, is it a productive cough or not? Are you coughing up mucus? If you are coughing up mucus, that is good. Cough it out. When you breathe deeply and you cough, cough out the mucus. If you have a sharp pain around your ribs (one you can put your finger-tip on top of, then it is probably a lung pain from mucus blockage being referred to the skin and NOT a heart attack.) Drink more liquids to help keep your mucus thin.
(Use the spit test to see if you are dehydrated ... if your saliva makes a long string then you are severely dehydrated OR if your urine is dark yellow --- drink 20 ounces of water or more.)

Second, do you have a throat or sinus infection or a cold? Is your throat sore? Do you have a sinus headache? Do you have post-nasal drip? Yes? Then gargle with 3% hydrogen peroxide. Yes, you can swallow the bubbles. Three times will help a lot.

For the sinuses, DILUTE the hydrogen peroxide six times with water to a 0.5% solution.
Irrigate the sinuses with dilute hydrogen peroxide. If it burns too much, add a little more water. Sniff in the liquid or as a spray. Hold your head back and roll to the left and right. Blow it out. Twice more is more effective for colds as the cold virus infects the mucus membranes.
Also, for colds take vitamin C. One or two grams per hour with water is good. Six to 10 grams a day is good. Also take a two hour nap to rest. Then more water and more vitamin C. And gargle with hydrogen peroxide again.

Third, if your are NOT dehydrated and if your cough is NOT productive, see a doctor to find the reason. Phenobarbital may suppress the cough.

100% right but I think that most with ADHD stopped reading after "sniff in the liquid". :-))
