A cough is one of the most common problems that people come across. A little infection and entry of harmful bodies in the body led to people suffering from a cough. Coughs are the thick layer that gets collected in the throat area and acts as a protective reflex to remove foreign bodies, mucus or irritants. It also sometimes acts as a primary respiratory reflex for inflammation. A dry cough can be of different types and each one of them is equally irritable. Although it is not very fatal when a dry cough does not go away even after many days, it can be a cause for significant discomfort, even disrupting sleep. It might also cause mild infection or exposure to airborne allergens as well that may harm your immune system gravely. Natural methods in such cases are the best option and are the most effective dry cough medicine available. While allopathic dry cough medicines make you feel drowsy and sleepy, natural and ayurvedic dry cough medicines make you feel fresh and also provide instant relief.
