Dry cough or cough that doesn’t produce phlegm or mucus can be extremely troubling. According to experts, while there are no specific causes, a dry cough can get triggered due to allergies or irritants.
As such, for relief, many tend to fall back on Ayurvedic remedies like drinking concoctions of turmeric, honey, and tulsi. However, according to Ayurveda expert Dr Mihir Khatri, these remedies are for wet cough or cough with phlegm.
“In dry cough, these ingredients don’t work. In fact, it may even increase dry cough,” explained Dr Khatri in an Instagram reel.
