Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

lt is the body's mechanism to fight off the infection thats why we get cough and sneeze to expel the infection and it is not the medicine that could help you for the exam. Purchase a steamer or dehumidifier, pour in camphor oil or karvol vapocap cut it, and pour its oily content in the water and take its steam. I assure you nothing will help you better and quicker than this.

After that try studying, taking the help of a spectacle (zero power). At night when you are going to sleep take a tablet of Montair-LC (Montelukast and Cetirizine) and cough syrup Alex (Phenylephrine hydrochloride and Chlorpheniramine maleate). Take karvol steam thrice daily and continue Montair-LC once daily for three days. It will be alright soon.
