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 Jackeline. Yes, acid reflux can lead to a dry or thickly cough which can worsen when lying flat. For this we would recommend the use of herbal bitters - used for symptoms of general indigestion - as found in the A.Vogel product Digestisan.

      The herbs we would recommend for this type of cough are Mullein and Marshmallow - they can be found in the A.Vogel Dry Cough spray.

      There can be a number of causes for your symptoms. If they have appeared suddenly and in the last few days, we would think of a viral infection in the first instance. These usually resolve quickly so if you are worried or still feeling unwell, please seek further advice from your doctor.
