A cough is an involuntary or voluntary act that clears your breathing passage and throat of mucus, fluids, irritants, microbes, and foreign particles. In other words, it’s a rapid expulsion of air from your lungs.
Even though coughing may be an indicator of a serious disease, in most cases, it clears up on its own without the need for medical attention. In addition, most coughs are triggered by a viral infection and clear up for a short period of time.
In case you have a runny nose, sore throat, or cough, you may expect your doctor to prescribe antibiotic drugs. However, most of the time, you do not need these drugs to treat a respiratory illness. Unfortunately, antibiotic drugs can do more harm than good, because they fight bacteria, not viruses.
In case you have a bacterial infection, antibiotics can help. However, in case you have a viral infection, they won’t help you feel better.
Antibiotics can often trigger vomiting or diarrhea and lead to allergic reactions. Certain allergic reactions may be serious or even life threatening.
The overuse and misuse of antibiotic drugs can encourage bacteria to change, so that medications do not work effectively to fight them. It’s known as “antibiotic resistance.” Antibiotic-resistant infections are harder and more expensive to cure.
That’s why many people use homemade remedies to remove mucus from their lungs and alleviate coughs.
