After all, this process is necessary for the body to get rid of mucus that accumulates in the upper respiratory tract, and from it contains pathogens.
So, we just have to deal with "dry" cough, in which almost no sputum is produced. Usually it hurts kids suffering laryngitis and tracheitis. In these cases it is advisable to use "Codeine", "glaucine" and other drugs that suppress the cough. You can also use the so-called folk remedies - steam inhalation, hot milk with honey and soda. cough usually begins with acute respiratory diseases as a "dry", but it soon becomes "wet". As mentioned above, in such cases it is better not to suppress, to the sputum was removed from the body. But if you cough too long, and departs sputum poorly, usually prescribed drugs, mucolytics, ie thinning "Bromhexine", "Ambroxol" and the like. But they can not be used for too long, or cough may only intensify. You can also use tools that improve sputum. This, for example, "Mukaltin" "Pektusin" "Likarin" and others, all contain extracts of various plants. If the cough caused by bronchitis or asthma, all of these tools will help. Physicians prescribe antispasmodics such as "salbutamol". Also, you can not do with bronchitis rubbing, put the mustard and banks, glue burning patches on the chest and back, take antibiotics. Because bronchitis is usually caused by viruses, but they do not act like drugs. It is better to use a hot tub with water of 39 degrees C, to enhance blood flow (but only in the absence of increased temperature of the child). When you cough, caused by pneumonia, on the contrary, antibiotics can not do without. In no case do not try to trim antitussives own. First of all it is necessary to find out the reason that caused the cough. And to do this can only be a doctor. He and prescribe the correct treatment regimen.
