Cofsils Natural Cough Syrup

Need for relief from Cough

A cough is not a disease, but can be a common symptom of different upper and lower respiratory tract diseases. Cough is an essential protective and defensive act for removal of mucus, noxious substances and infections from the upper respiratory tract. While an occasional cough is normal, a cough that persists may be a sign of a medical problem. A cough is considered "acute" if it lasts less than three weeks. It is considered "chronic" if it lasts longer than eight weeks.

Common causes of acute cough are common cold, influenza (flu), pneumonia, whooping cough. People who have a history or smoking, chronic lung diseases such as COPD, asthma, seasonal allergies, acid reflux disease (Gastro esophageal Reflux Disease or GERD), and chronic infections such as tuberculosis, have chronic cough.

Most of the time, a cough doesn’t require treatment. It will go away on its own. The best way to treat a cough caused by a viral infection is to let the immune system deal with it — generally, such coughs clear up on their own. Cough medicines may be helpful if your cough is caused by a cold or the flu (influenza).

Cough medicines are grouped into two types: antitussives and expectorants. Antitussives are cough suppressants. They relieve your cough by blocking the cough reflex. Expectorants thin mucus. This may make coughing work better to clear the mucus from the airway. They are also available in combination with other drugs, such as pain relievers, decongestants or antihistamines and are meant to treat many symptoms at once.
