    Persistent cough.

    What home remedy or natural remedy would you recommend that have been tried and proven to treat the above?

    Try a thumb sized piece of ginger, with clove of garlic and a whole lemon.
    Cut them all up lemon rind and all
    Boil for half an hour
    Drink a mug full, sweetened only with honey.
    Have a one cup each day for three days.
    If that does not work see your doctor.

    For tickly cough you can not beat honey

    Hot tea with honey and lemon always does the trick for me. If it keeps persisting, see your Dr. It may be an infection such as sinusitis..

      I have tried garlic tea, it eases for a while but returns after a couple hours.  I do think it's sinusitis and allergies.  Will have to try your method.  Thanks much.

      If it is allergies, use local honey, it is supposed to help you become immune to the things that bother. I have honeysuckle blooming right now and use Chlortrimeton and Allegra both to keep things dried up. The drainage is what causes the coughing.

      Thanks Becky, I figure that it is draining and that is contributing to the cough as you mentioned.

    We use chinese herbs where the healing is more for long term. This means the cure is not immediate but after 3 - 4 sessions of drinking the medicine, it helps to prevent future cough.

    If the cough is due to allergies, I've heard that local honey will help ease allergies to pollens, thus decreasing the cough
