Hi, For the cough - try some warm saline gargles , steam inhalation. Drink plenty of water, preferably luke warm and plenty of fluids like soups etc. Eating light meals would help. You could chew on some lozenges and try some deep breathing exercises. Syrups with dextromethorphan would help. Avoid spicy processed foods, fumes. Do not smoke. If your symptoms persist - You would need a chest xray, throat examination and antibiotic medications if required. Regards.
