      Hello Katie. I am sorry that you are still troubled with your cough. There are a number of causes of a tickly cough and these range from infection, to acid reflux and allergies. Each of these will need have different treatments. As symptoms persist, the best advice I can give you at this point is to visit your doctor with the aim of getting a diagnosis. With this, we will have a better chance of recommending the right treatment for you,.

    Hi I've been having a dry cough for little over a month now. I visited the doctor who said I had a fungal infection and gave me some medicine that reduced the cough. But its still persisting and comes in the way of work as I play and teach the violin and the tickly sensation in the throat causes the cough. Please help

      Hello Shannon. Fungal infections can take a bit of time to treat so it does not surprise me that symptoms are still there. As your doctor has started treating you, I would suggest you return to them to let them know that you are still experiencing symptom as a further course of treatment might be necessary.

      Hello John. I am afraid that I am unable to comment on this as I have neither the knowledge or experience of using cow's water. If I do discover anything, I will come back to you.

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.
