Chest congestion remedies cough

Common Questions and Answers about Chest congestion remedies cough


Avatar f tn It just seems so weird to me to have sudden heavy congestion in my throat and chest with no stuffy nose or other symptoms. As for the achy body, I think that's probably just from the violent coughing (so bad it makes me gag). I'm taking Mucinex now and tylenol for pain, and I'm feeling a little better. But how can avoid this in the future, and could this be a sign of something more serious?
Avatar n tn Never had the problems you all have mentioned until I took the drug Levaquin for chest infection. Should have gotten rid of it on my own. (herbs and old wives remedies) Trusted my doctor who trusts the FDA!!. The drug is poisen. Has caused me many more complications. Tendon problems in legs, leg pain, blurred vision and now constant congestion and nasal problems. Haven't been on an antibiotic in over 20 years and this is what happens!!!

209987 tn?1451939065 Youngest son and I both have bronchitis...that's what you get for kissing your kids I guess. lol Anyway, I can't take the garlic pills as I have issues with it. I have a bottle of Eucalyptus essential oil, but not sure of how to use it safely. Should I fill the sink with hot water and add a few drops? I was told that it could seriously harm my little guy. Oldest son picked me up a bottle of expectorant, but I have high blood no go.
Avatar f tn I just got over this after 2 miserable weeks!! Raw honey with cinnamon. Hot lemon water with raw honey. Peppermint or green tea with raw honey. Chicken soup. Gargle with salt water. Tylenol & benadryl at night (to dry up your sinuses so you can sleep) with Vicks vapor rub on your chest for a cough, keep water & cough drips with menthol by the bed. A humidifier helps a lot too.

My kids are very sensitive to laundry detergants and softners, so thats a possability. Has he had any immunizations lately? If so Id call his doc or ped. Could be a reaction. Aveeno Baby lotion non scented works VERY well for dry skin, I use it on myself and my children, I get the scent free one, and it hydrates for 24 hrs. Hope he feels better soon!
Avatar f tn Halls are ok but ricolas are better. A home remedy I use for cough and congestion Is sitting in a bathroom with the steam from a shower and just taking regular breaths. It breaks up the mucus and relaxes your airway.
Avatar f tn he only had a slight temp for a day. after that he seemed fine aside of a slight runny nose, and a minor cough once in a while. his dr said that theres nothing he can take for the common cold, and to just wait it out. i hear phlegm in his chest sometimes when he breathes. i found that tickling him makes him laugh histerically, which in turn causes him to cough. thats the only way the phlegm comes up. im wondering if theres anything i can do to eliminate it in total.
1098165 tn?1340760837 i developed this nasty cough monday night and i have puked most of the night. it's now wednesday and am still coughing pretty there anything that can be taken safely while pregnant? i'm afraid to take anything. i have been drinking hot water, honey and tea and it helps very little. was going to buy halls or fisherman's friends but there's a warning for pregnant peeps to consult their first i thought it was my allergies but i guess not...
Avatar f tn I have a really bad cough and chest congestion its a little hard for me to breath, what home remedies are good for it?
Avatar f tn Sometimes, I'll just cough periodically though through-out the day due to a sense of tickle in my chest/throat area that kinda forces me to cough. It seems to be worse at night, after eating dinner/snack too. I can cough quit a bit after dinner and as I'm resting in bed or lying down. The cough doesn't wake me up at night though and to my knowledge--I don't cough while sleeping. I also don't cough much during the day but it just depends.
Avatar n tn I have read several messages from people with similar symptoms such as mine - cough mainly in AM with mucus, again in the evening. I plan to try some of the suggestions such as taking an antihistamine/decongestant and a remedy for GERD (although I do not have symptoms of that particular problem). I have been hacking for about 3 months, have been to the doctor who has given me antibiotics along with cough medicines. Seems to help a bit but then I'm hacking again.
Avatar m tn Try Simply Saline to help with throat congestion, post nasal drip, reflux, etc. Squirt it all the way into your throat and then cough it up.
Avatar n tn Cough drops have lots of sugar. Sugar raises the risks of cardiovascular disease factors, including blood pressure. Many medical studies have shown this. Here is an example peer reviewed study in a medical journal showing link of sugar to increased triglycerides and blood pressure: Alternative to cough drops is sipping hot, warm or cool water with a segment of fresh lemon.
Avatar f tn after about a week the head cold part seemed to subside a bit and the cough took over, as others have mentioned no respite from the cough even while trying to sleep and have stomach/chest pain from the severity of the cough.............
Avatar f tn Last April 2014 I got the cough and it's nov and I still have it except that it went away for almost 2,weeks and came back 3 days ago. I get this tickle on my chest that makes me to cough, during the day I get a clear thing when I cough but in the morning whe I get up I get white thick mucus. I even crack as if I had a bad cold and get the mucus out.
Avatar n tn I also have a little chest congestion that seems to make me cough in the evening hours. My teeth actually hurt worse than anything right now! I don't even want to eat and I can't have hot drinks because I also have rosacea. I am a mother of two toddlers and attend online classes for my school. I am so busy all the time and can't concentrate as well as I used to. I just took some Ibruprofen, about 800 mgs..does anyone know of any other solutions at this point?
987762 tn?1331031553 For cough I get a cough syrup from the local health food store since I can't do normal cold remedies. I just got a cold with chemo and I got a a gut infection after that. My muscles are a wreck. I have to take muscle relaxers and pain medications for the spasms from the coughing and the digestive issues. I feel like a mule kicked my insides out. Mostly I have to remember how painful it is the symptoms are time limited not permanent. It seem like it at the time.
Avatar f tn As you can see I have suffered a lot from having whooping cough and no matter how many times the doctors say that it's likely whooping cough will not affect you in the future it does! I have no remedies myself but would be entirely greatful for any ideas, I have tried every drug and method over the counter and nothing works good luck to the rest of you for finding a cure!
Avatar f tn Alot of it going around here in Washington. I started with a sore throat, then I got the chest cold and now I have the cough. I have had this for about 4 weeks. I went to the doctor and he said my chest was clear and gave me some nose spray to use to dry up my sinuses. I have heard that it can take up to six weeks for the cough to go away. Also I can feel drainage down the back of my throat and I heard that can make you cough.
Avatar n tn I have had severe cough and sinus congestion for 4-5 days; which is worse at night,I took oral decongestant psedoephedrine with guaifenesin and I could not sleep two nights in a row, it kept me awake. I do not know if I should go to a doctor and spend money( as I do not have medical insurance,and it's expensive for me.), or should I continue to use over the counter medications and wait until it disappears by itself or I am afraid it might get worse.

Avatar m tn Gross as it sounds, you'll be relieving the gas congestion in your chest, and the relief will be almost immediate. The embarrassment of being somewhat ill-mannered by necessity shouldn't override removing the gas, and the pain, out of your system. Homeopathic Remedy This remedy has been around for a long time. Add a few drops of peppermint, ginger, or cinnamon extract to a glass of water, and drink it.
Avatar f tn ) i took it without eating and baby did not like it at all 5 mins later I threw up.
Avatar f tn My doctor said I could take robitusson DM for cough & cold & mucinex DM for congestion buy only if it was that bad also vicka works magic rub it on your chest behind your ears but only if you don't plan on going out once you aplly it. Even some honey & lime tea!
1581202 tn?1296531442 the only thing u can take when pregnant is benadryl which may help clear ur sinuses... robitussin for cough and chest congestion, and tylenol for pain and fever... do not take anything with out consulting your doctor first! many medications have dangerous chemicals that can harm baby!!
Avatar f tn I need something for chest congestion, nasal congestion and cough. I like the multi symptoms stuff because I don't feel like taking 5 different medications throughout the day and night. I also would only be taking it 2 times a day....once in the AM and once at night.
