How to quiet a cough?
Answers
There are a few ways to quiet a cough: the first, take medication, use a dehumidifier at night, drink lots of liquids (warm ones help the best!) Elevating the head while sleeping will help minimize coughing at night time. Determine the cause of cough, as some causes need different treatments than other. For example, a cold would benefit from a decongestant to break down post nasal drip while a bacterial infection such as bronchitis would require an antibiotic.
