Cough With Phlegm

Cough With Phlegm

Symptoms

  • Persistent cough with phlegm
  • Increased production of phlegm

Causes

Respiratory tract infection

Risk Factors

  • Smoking
  • Sudden changes in temperature
  • Reduced immune defences
  • Crowded places (wherein the infection spreads rapidly)

Treatment

To relieve persistent cough with phlegm, let it cease, facilitating expectoration. When phlegm produced is especially viscous; it is thus necessary for it to be fluidified.

For this purpose mucolytic active ingredients are needed such as N-acetylcisteine contained in Fluimucil A, which break the protein links of mucus.
