3. Salt water
Gargling with salt water can help kill bacteria and loosen mucus in the throat.
Loosening the mucus in your throat will help clear your sinuses and get rid of your cough more quickly.
Salt water gargles can also help reduce swelling and irritation caused by persistent coughing.

Ginger also has a nutty taste, which stimulates saliva production and helps with dry mouth or throat.
Inhaling steam helps loosen a stuffy nose. This will make it easier to blow your nose and, if you experience post-nasal drip, expel any mucus that has built up in your throat.
Because it can moisten sore throats, steam can also relieve pain.
Try inhaling the steam from a pot of boiling water. Once the water starts to steam, remove it from the heat, and place your face on it.(fny/jpnn)
