HOW TO MANAGE AN ANNOYING COUGH?
5 Coughing Hacks To Help Get You Through Your Day.
Whether it's a dry cough, a wet cough, or a congested cough, any type of persistent chest and throat hacking can be a major pain. But fret not; below are some fast and easy tips to help keep your cough from ruining your routine.
1. Shut the Cough Up!
Instead of ignoring your cough and hoping for the best, treat yourself to new Theraflu® Cough Relief. With two maximum-strength active ingredients, Theraflu Cough Relief suppresses an irritating dry and wet cough, and thins mucus to relieve chest congestion, all in a warm, soothing liquid.
2. Get Steamy.
Another easy thing you can do to help alleviate your cough should already be part of your routine. Showering! But instead of a quick in-and-out job, take a steamy shower1 and let the vapors work their wonder. You can even take it a step further, and use a humidifier throughout your house for added cough-relieving moisture.1
Not only does it taste great, but honey can also help soothe a sore throat.2 Chances are you have some in your cupboard, so why not give it a try?
4. Own it.
Rather than wait for your cough to strike at inopportune moments (a presentation, concert, date, or anything where a cough is less than ideal), you could briefly mention up front to anyone in the room that you’re a bit under the weather. Unless they’re truly mean, you should be in the clear!
5. Consider Staying Home.
If you’ve got a cough that’s truly unruly, it might be time to take the day off. Not only will your coworkers thank you, but you can help prevent spreading germs3 that can get other people sick.
Be sure to keep these tips handy, so the next time a cough strikes, you’ll be ready to shut the cough up!
