Welcome to

  • If the cough is coming with white or greenish sputum, then you can take syrup Koflet (from Himalaya pharma) 10 mL thrice a day with lukewarm water.
  • If there is only dry cough or allergic cough, then you can take syrup Jufex Forte (Aimil pharma) 10 mL thrice a day with lukewarm water.
  • Avoid ice cream, cold drinks, rice, curd and other cold food items. Always drink lukewarm water.
