Cough is a protective reaction of the human body associated with irritation of the respiratory tract as a result of a cold. As a result of coughing, these paths are cleared of sputum accumulated in them. Clear, that it is not the cough itself that needs to be treated, butthe illness that caused it. However, if the cough is dry and unproductive, the discomfort it causes can be reduced. At the disposal of doctors are many medications that help thin the sputum and improve its discharge. However, medicines will not always be appropriate — for example, if the patient is a pregnant woman, a child or an allergic person.
