Coughing is not an illness
People who suffer from coughing do not suffer from the disease "coughing". Because this illness does not exist. Coughing is a common symptom of various illnesses such as asthma or bronchitis. But why do we actually cough? Almost every reaction in our body has a particular meaning, and so it is with coughing. Coughing is a protective reflex that protects our airways. It transports mucus, dust and other foreign substances out of our body. However, coughing is not only a symptom of illness, but can also be triggered by smoking, allergies or irritation of the mucous membranes.
Most people know a persistent cough from bronchitis. Bronchitis describes the inflammation of the lower airways, which include the bronchi. Bronchitis and the cough that goes with it are often caused by a flu-like infection. The symptoms can be very stressful and disturbing. But with the right cough medicine, the symptoms can be relieved quickly and reliably. An old classic, and still very popular, is cough syrup.
By coughing, our body wants to expel the mucus. Various medicines can be used to loosen the mucus and thus reduce the cough. Mucolytic drugs contain active ingredients such as ambroxol or acetylcysteine. These active ingredients liquefy the mucus so that it is no longer so tough. This helps the mucus to be coughed up much more easily and quickly. The ingredients also ensure that newly produced mucus does not become viscous. We offer expectorant medicines as throat lozenges, cough syrups or tablets. By the way: many of our expectorants are based on herbal ingredients. These mucolytics can also be taken by children and teenagers.
Pain relieving medicines against coughing
Mucolytic drugs should be taken in the middle of a cold. Before and after this, there is hardly any mucus that can be coughed up. At the beginning and end, the cough is usually dry and causes pain. During these two phases, the coughing irritation should be calmed down. We recommend cough suppressants in the form of lozenges. They calm the irritated throat and numb the sore throat.
