If you are one of the people who cough constantly at night, it is better to take a look at this article and try to solve this problem with home remedies. In the following, we will introduce some herbal and traditional medicines for this complication.
Coughing at night can be a sleep apnea, and it is important that if you have this complication, find ways to soothe a sore throat and sensitive airways before going to bed.
To be able to effectively stop your cough and improve its symptoms, follow these tips:
Drinking herbal tea with honey: Instead of drinking a glass of caffeinated beverage, choose herbal tea with honey. In a study of children 2 years of age and older with upper respiratory tract infections, researchers gave children 2 tablespoons of honey before going to bed at night. Then they found that honey was as effective as antitussive drugs in reducing night coughs (in sleep) and improving the quality of children’s sleep. The best way to relieve sore throat and annoying cough is to dissolve honey in light tea or warm water and drink it. But remember to never give honey to children under one year of age, as it can cause dangerous botulism poisoning.
Sleep on the slope: If you do not sleep on a slope, the accumulation of mucus in the back of the throat can irritate the throat, which can lead to gastroesophageal reflux disease, which can lead to excessive coughing. So be sure to use your pillow sloping.
Use of moist incense: Dry air causes a sore throat and a dry cough, so keep the air humidified with a fumigator. Hot, humid air softens sputum and opens the airways. If you add a few drops of eucalyptus to the water of the device, it eliminates sputum faster, because it stimulates the lungs and clears the nasal passages. If you do not have an incense burner, put a towel on your head and boil your face on a steamer in a bowl of water. Breathe gently under the towel for a few minutes and repeat several times a day.
Keep the sheets clean: If you are prone to allergies, know that the dust in the sheets is the trigger for the onset of allergy symptoms. So wash your sheets with warm water every week.
Avoid irritants: Chemicals in household cleaners and disinfectants, as well as in air fresheners, can irritate the throat mucosa, worsen coughs, and irritate the eyes, throat, and mouth. If you want to improve your cough, you should not use cleaning chemicals with a nasty odor.
No smoking: Do not smoke and do not stop in places where there is cigarette smoke, that is, do not even be exposed to other people’s cigarette smoke.
Drink plenty of fluids: This will soften the sputum in your chest. If your cough is caused by a cold or the flu, drinking plenty of water and fluids is the best way to reduce its duration. Drink at least 8 glasses of water daily. You can also add a little lemon juice to it.
Taking some medications: Some antipruritic drugs can help soften sputum, while antacids can also reduce coughing. Talk to your doctor about taking these medications. See your doctor if your cough lasts more than 7 days.
