Q.

Bad cough

I have asthma and have developed a bad cough. Are there any natural remedies that I can use to get rid of it? I can not get a good night's sleep because I hear myself breathing ( wheezing) so I need to sit up and then I do not sleep well.

Your cough may be due to a postnasal drip or due the asthma itself. You will need to ask your doctor to optimise your asthma treatment and also to give you antihistamines and a nasal spray so that your cough stops.

When my 5' friend Annette Kimmett was pregnant with her children she caught a lot of chest colds. Every time Cupcake coughed when she had these chest colds she coughed up a lot of mucus. But this mucus Annette coughed up when she had these nasty chest colds was very thick. She took expectorant cough syrup to quiet her nagging chest cold coughs but she had lingering coughs after getting over her chest colds during her pregnancies. (Happily her son and daughter were born healthy.) Annette once told me pregnant women often have lingering coughs when they get over a cold flu or bronchitis. Why is this?

Singer gymnast actress dancer Cathy Rigby is very pretty. But when 4'10" Cathy catches a cold,flu,or bronchitis,she has lingering coughing spasms. She suffered very severe respiratory infections as a child due to her premature birth. Did these child respiratory infections Cathy battled cause her to develop the severe lingering cough spasms what she suffers when she gets colds flu or bronchitis?

Can a cold flu or bronchitis worsen asthma?
