Fluids all the way

When you have an allergic cough, keep drinking a lot of fluids. Fluids here refer to anything from a warm vegetable soup to even warm rasam and water. When you keep your body hydrated via food, the thick mucus which gets formed in your sinus glands has a chance to dissolve and leave your body sooner. Also, as a reaction of allergy, you might have an associated stuffy nose and a dry throat feeling, which can be got away with by drinking fluids all day long.

Honey is your friend

Honey is an age old Ayurvedic treatment for allergic cough. Drinking a teaspoon of pure organic honey whenever you feel like the allergy is agitating will help you get rid of the uncomfortable feeling. If you want to spice up this natural medicine, you could also stir in ginger paste and eat the mixture twice or thrice a day.

The holy basil and ginger

Peel and grate an inch long ginger and throw in a few fresh holy basil leaves into a pot of water. Boil this mixture until you smell the flavor of holy basil and ginger steaming out of the pot. Once done, strain out the concoction into a glass; let it get a little warm and bearable to drink. Now stir in a teaspoon of honey into the water and drink down this syrup twice a day to get rid of allergic cough.
