Quiz: Are you letting dry cough get in your way?
MANILA, Philippines – Rainy season is here, and we’ve all been affected by the various ailments it brings.
Some of the conditions we could get during this season are a nasty cold, a painful sore throat, and most irritatingly, a dry cough that often lasts for long periods of time.
The effects of this persistent type of dry cough are easily felt: Our total number of sick leaves decrease, outings with friends are missed, and overall productivity is lessened due to the discomfort and pain it affects us with.
Most of the time, we ignore dry cough and shrug it off with lozenges or a couple of meds that in most cases, don’t work as quickly as we’d like them to. What we do not know is that if not treated correctly, dry cough will stay longer and may lead to a "productive" cough (i.e. with phlegm and mucus), which will hinder us even more from making the most of the day.
