      Hello Soly. The first thing that comes to mind is that your symptoms might be caused by acid reflux. This condition occurs when the acidic contents of your stomach travel upwards and backwards to irritate your pharynx leading to a cough. We would recommend indigestion remedies such as A.Vogel Digestisan for this. Of course, there are could be other causes for your cough and if the symptom persists, please make an appointment to see your doctor.

      I presume you have been to see to your doctor about your joint pains but if not, this will be the first step. The herb that we use for joint problems is known as Devil's Claw ( It is not a painkiller and hence, will take a few weeks for the full effect of the remedy to be established.

A tickly cough is technically termed as ‘non-productive.’ This is because, unlike a chesty cough, tickly or dry coughs typically bring up little to no phlegm.
