Patient Comments: Cold, Flu, Allergy - Cough Treatment

When you get a cough, what treatment or remedies help soothe your symptoms?

Comment from: joax, 25-34 Female (Patient) Published: December 05

It starts with itchy throat for 2 days then starts with cough and runny nose. In my last check up with my doctor I found I have asthma. As remedy for sore throat, I have always been using Strepsils, that I get from drugstore.
