However, if a cough is chronic and persistent, it requires an immediate treatment. Many people tend to use lozenges in order to treat a cough.
However, these medications don’t address the actual root of the problem, and they are packed with harmful chemicals which can cause many adverse effects, such as drowsiness, dizziness, fatigue, vomiting, and stomach cramps.
Instead of using these medications, you should try the following homemade remedy that will strengthen your immune system and relieve your cold and flu symptoms fast and naturally.
