PostSubject: Bad Cough- Tried everything...HELP!!   Fri Apr 05, 2013 10:01 am

It's that time of year again, the time that I always catch a cold. What's really frustrating is I always suffer from Bronchitis...so even though my other cold symptoms are better, the coughing won't stop! I had that awful-tasting Robitussin-like medicine my doctor prescribed...no help! I tried hot tea w/lemon & honey...then I tried it just with honey. I did the vaporub thing (which I hate, but usually helps). Nothing! It's especially bad at night time. Nasal drip doesn't help...and I'm limited in the medication I take because of my high BP. Coricidin didn't work either, btw.

Anyone know of any natural home remedies? Any help would be appreciated! Thank you so much! sickcold

Not sure about meds to take or home remedies, but you might try what we moms did when the kids would cough through the night and raise the head of your bed and use a humidifier while you sleep. Get a wedge of foam or a thick pillow and put it between the mattresses and lift the head up....Feel better! Smiley Hug

Sounds like bronchial asthma: http://www.webmd.com/asthma/guide/bronchial-asthma Of course, I'm not a doctor, so what do I know. Smile

If you scroll down to the bottom of this page, it mentions some natural asthma remedies: http://healthvigil.blogspot.com/2012/01/bronchial-asthma-symptoms-causes.html

Maybe some of them would help your overall breathing and reduce the coughing.

Honey and Lemon does the trick for me most of the time, But i have heard of people Take half an onion rub it with vicks vaporub and put beside there bed during the night as close to your head as possible apparently this does wonders, My sister uses it for her kids if they get sick

Put vicks vapor rub on the bottom of your feet and sleep with socks on. Its slimey but does help the coughing at night. My youngest son has bronchial Asthma and we've done it for years. If we do it every night for awhile it gets better.

Oh, just be careful when putting your feet on the floor....its a slimey walk to the bathroom.

I, too am limited on what cough and cold medicines I can use due to high blood pressure. I use Deslym cough syrup for coughs. I haven't had a cold so far this year. I haven't heard about rubbing vapor rub on feet to help control coughing at night.

Instead of mixing honey & lemon with the tea, try taking a spoonful of honey & a spoonful of lemon. That's what I do.
