Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

A dry cough is very common with a change of weather and is often prolonged. It often causes a lot of discomforts especially in the throat. It can also be associated with seasonal allergies. You will be needing an expectorant along with a drug from the bronchodilator group for dilation of the bronchioles and easy expectoration of mucus. I suggest syrup Mexair which contains Terbutaline (bronchodilator) and Guaifenesin (expectorant). Other than that I would suggest you do steam inhalation twice day.


Treatment plan:

Syrup Mexair twice a day.
