Horrible Cough

I have a horrible chest cough that hurts really bad. Does anyone have any tricks to ease the pain whenever I cough or sneeze? I am taking cough syrup but it only helps so much.

  • You might have to see a doctor, horrible chest coughs have the tendency to travel. An example, it could be an upper respiratory infection and if so then Cough syrup with codeine would help.

    But an option to help you are hot tea with honey.

  • My cough had gotten so bad that I had to be put on steroids, a cough suppressant & vitamin D.
    I did not feel sick, other than having a cough that lasted for MONTHS!
    It turned out to be a type of asthma, & it was caused by mold in my walls...which was caused by a faulty gas heater.
    It would be advisable to go to a Dr, so that he/she can run some tests!
