Home Remedies to treat Dry Cough

Coughing is a natural reflex of the body which happens when the mucus in the mouth drains down the air passage. It occurs in order to clear down this drained down mucus as well as irritants.

Still, coughing must not be taken lightly as it can be a leading cause of many serious respiratory as well as non-respiratory diseases.

There are two types of coughs; one is called Productive cough which causes the production of phlegm and the other is called Nonproductive Cough or also known as Dry Cough, which does not produce any mucus or phlegm.

Dry cough can often be caused by the following.

  • Asthma
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
  • A postnasal drip
  • Some form of infection

For our readers, we have gathered a bunch of home remedies to treat Dry cough.

Honey

Honey is a gift of nature that is effective in the treatment of any type of cough which also includes Dry Cough.

Honey works by triggering the salivary glands in the mouth which helps to produce more saliva and it causes the airways to be lubricated and in the end providing relief from cough. With Honey’s anti-inflammatory properties, it provides relief from inflammation of air passages.

  • Mix ginger and pomegranate juice in honey in equal amounts.  Eat 1 tbsp of this connotation 3 times each day.
  • Mix 1 tbsp of honey in 1 cup of lukewarm water and drink this herbal tea at least once a day.

Steam Inhalation

A dry cough is often caused by inflammation of the air passages and inhaling steam is the best way to treat the inflamed respiratory tract. Steam inhalation also promotes healthy mucus drainage.

For better effects, a person can add in few drops of any essential oil in the steaming water for adding in the antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antiviral effects.

Gargling with Salt Water

One of the most common remedies to treat cough of any type is to gargle on salt water.

Saltwater provides relief from any discomfort which is caused by the dry cough as well as it treats a sore throat through the process of osmosis. Gargling on this saltwater also dislodges any phlegm stuck in the respiratory tract to be expelled out easily.

  • Add half a tsp of salt in 1 cup of lukewarm water
  • Stir the water until the salt is dissolved completely
  • Gargle on this solution for a few minutes and spit it out
  • Perform this remedy a few times a day

Moist Air

Dry environments are also one of the causes of dry cough as they make the nasal secretions to be dried up and block the air passages. For these cases, the use of Humidifiers is recommended.

Most air helps by providing relief in breathing patterns as well as fighting off the coughing fits.

Sleep Upright

This is more of a tip than a remedy but is nonetheless effective in treating dry cough.

For those who suffer from incessant coughing at night, they should try sleeping in the upright position at night. When a person sleeps in an upright condition, the breathing becomes easier and provides relief from coughing.

For sleeping in an upright position, a person can use a pillow which can be placed under their head.
