Cough and light fever may cause distressing symptoms, and home remedies can give effective relief. Here's what you can do.

  • Grind a small piece of ginger and mix it with ground jaggery. Suck on this paste whenever you experience cough. This will help you expel cough causing phlegm.
  • Boil some milk with ginger and black pepper. Add some sweet basil leaves and cloves to it. Drink this milk before going to bed and cover yourself well.
  • Mix together some honey with ground pepper and juice from a small piece of crushed ginger. If you have a sore throat or cough, this can help you soothe it.
  • Warm milk with a pinch of turmeric can help you deal with throat infections or any other upper respiratory infections that may be causing the fever and cough.
  • Expelling your phlegm would help relieve the symptoms of cough. To do this, boil some water and add a few drops of eucalyptus oil to it. Now cover your head with a towel and bend over on the pot of water. Inhale the water and eucalyptus vapor. This will loosen the phlegm so that you can expel it out.
  • To cure cough, consume a spoon of sweet basil juice with a small quantity of garlic juice and honey. Consume this mixture thrice a day till you experience relief from your cough.
  • Sucking on a small piece of garlic can also help you reduce the amount of phlegm in your chest.
  • Eating an apple every day will also help you cure cough.
