I get this dry cough, sometimes, I keep cough drops everywhere, there is no mucus, if I am talking it will happen, or if I am reclining. Is this a symptom of bronchi that others get? It is anoying and embaressing.

    Persistent cough is never a fun situation. Did you try natural remedies? A spoonful of organic honey with turmeric is an excellent, old-age remedy for nasty cough. Try it and see your GP, if not getting a relief. A chronic dry cough can also be a sign of asthma.

      I am allergic to tumeric, wish I was not because it is an excellent anti inflamatory.  I can try local natural hoey though, I use a lot of cough drops..... smile

      have you tried mucolytics?  they are medications that cause you to make more mucous, so instead of a dry cough you actually have a moist cough

      & it seems with a more moist lung situation you actually cough less.

      Mucodyne is one of these, they are written up right at this site, in the topic

      *mucolytics*
