Re: Cold turned into bad cough - coughing up blood sometimes
Yeah smoking does cause a real bad cough, so I wouldnt be smoking again if I were you!
As for the actual cough.today I had a horrible cough (caused by a cold, not smoking) and I worked out a way to stop the cough. Well, it worked for me anyway.
All day I consistantly drank hot lemon drinks with honey. Basically, boiled water with a few squirts of lemon and a couple of teaspoons of honey. I would take a sip everytime I felt a cough coming on. I also had a hankerchief with eucalyptus oil on it, and would take a sniff of that every now and then.
I did this consistantly for a couple of hours and my cough went away..
Oh and I think you should see a doctor..I was always told if you start coughing up blood that could be a throat infection, so you should see your doctor if its gotten that bad.
Great beauty and virtue rarely dwell together.
