Dry cough

A dry cough produces little or no mucus and is caused by irritation or inflammation in the throat and chest

Echinacea is a traditional herb known to aid the body in its fight against the symptoms of cold and flu. Supplements like Echinaforce help increase the body’s resistance to infection by strengthening the immune system, allowing the body to fight the misery of colds and flu.

      Hello Amy. The most likely cause of an acute dry cough will be a viral infection. If this is the case with you, I would suggest the use of the A.Vogel Cough Spray containing the herbs Mullein and Marshmallow. If however, your cough persists for longer than 3 weeks or worsens, please see your doctor to get checked out.

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.
