I had a cold/flu 2 weeks ago, went see doctor took antibiotics...it eventually recovered but now left with this persistant dry cough...which after seeing the doctor for the 2nd time, just gave cough medication. :( It doesn't seems to work. Any herbal remedies to recommend? :dunno:

Yes, I do have dry cough too.
There is this itchy feeling in my throat and I have been coughing for almost half a year already...

Try "Yi Ding Ning" about $5-6 from Chinese Medical halls; it works for me. Plus, lots of early nights! No sleeping late.

go buy bird nest and drink.. Eu Yan Sang got sell. Chinese doctor said inside dirty , must clean it. U may think bird nest expensive.. but 3-4 western doctor trips added togather also same.

I was healed by drinking brewed bird nest with rock sugar.. about $230. Just one drink only cure liao.

Had the same problem a couple of years ago, a persistent dry cough (after a bout of flu) that wouldn't go away for more than 1 month despite several courses of antibiotics and western cough medicine.

Finally a colleague bought a couple of things for me from a shop in the basement of Fu Lu Shou complex :

Yin Chiao cough syrup (green and white box)
Old aunty/sister-in-law (or something like that) Pei Pa Koa (not the Nin Jiom stuff you see advertised on TV, you gotta ask the people at the shop what they sell, I think there's not that many brands.)

3 times a day, and within 2-3 days the cough was gone.

No medication, whether western or eastern, ever works to cure dry coughs in my family. :cry:

The only "treatment" that works is for the person to hug a heat-pack or hot water bottle to their neck/chest when they sleep. This usually cures the cough in just two days. :)

HOWEVER, do not use this method if you have a fever. :nono:

It's the furs in the furrycakes that cause the lung irritation.

Suggest carrot cakes or banana cakes.

Take care!
Doc.
