About cough - causes and symptoms

A cough can be very stressful and uncomfortable - especially in the case of a productive cough - but it is a natural and important reflex of the body. If foreign bodies, such as dust, smoke or crumbs enter the airways, coughing instantly eliminates them. This self-cleaning mechanism is vital because it keeps the airways clear and clean, thereby protecting the lungs.

We distinguish between dry cough and productive cough:

A dry cough can be triggered by various environmental factors such as cigarette smoke, dust or the start of a common cold; it comes along with only little mucous in the airways, or no mucous at all. A dry cough is irritating and can be very painful as the repeated unproductive cough can make the throat sore and strains the muscles of the chest and back. A reliable, proven antitussive or cough suppressant medication may help – ask your medical professional for advice.

A productive cough occurs later on in a common cold and is accompanied by much more mucous, which has to be expelled by coughing.

It is caused by common cold viruses that trigger an inflammation of the mucous membranes in the bronchi, which is associated with increased mucous production. This phlegm settles in the bronchi and cannot be transported away by the cilia, the tiny hairs within the bronchi. The body reacts to the phlegm with a cough reflex, which aims to clear the airways – however, often, coughing on its own is insufficient to remove the phlegm.

In such cases, an expectorant such as neo-bronchol®, can be helpful. neo-bronchol® dissolves the mucous and clears the airways. As the only lozenge containing the proven expectorant ambroxol, neo-bronchol® is ideal for when you are out and about.

Special mode of action - neo-bronchol® with ambroxol

neo-bronchol® is the preferred solution for a productive cough. Its effect is based on the active ingredient ambroxol hydrochloride, a proven ingredient.

If viruses enter the body within a common cold, more mucous is produced by the bronchi. Often the mucous cannot be expelled quickly enough and settles as phlegm in the bronchi. The cilia, the tiny hairs within the bronchi, become congested and cannot transport the phlegm. The body reacts to the phlegm with a cough reflex and attempts to remove the foreign body – i.e. the phlegm. For productive coughs with sticky, thick mucous the cough reflex alone is often not sufficient to remove the phlegm. This is where neo-bronchol® with its proven active ingredient ambroxol helps reliably.

Ambroxol has various mechanisms in which it supports the natural clearance of the respiratory tract and acts against productive cough:

  • It stimulates the formation of a watery, thin secretion and thereby liquefies the phlegm, making it easier to remove
  • It activates the ciliated epithelum and thereby supports the transport of bronchial mucous.

Thus the phlegm is dissolved and removed from the bronchi so that it can be expelled by coughing.

The airways and bronchi are freed of mucous and you can breathe freely once more.

Furthermore the natural self-cleaning function of the bronchi is restored – the cilia are able to function properly again and remove any foreign bodies you may inhale.

 
Not only do the lozenges act rapidly, I can take them with me everywhere and they taste good!

More tips & tricks

for cough

For dry cough, it is most important to relieve the urge to cough and reduce the number of sometimes painful coughing fits. Antitussives from the pharmacy are effective, as are supplementary measures such as increased liquid intake and humidifying the air. Home remedies, such as a glass of milk with honey or inhalations, can also be used to help soothe dry coughs.

For productive cough, the most important thing is to loosen the phlegm so that it can be coughed up and the airways can be cleared. The use of over-the-counter expectorants - such as neo-bronchol® - can be helpful here. The recovery process can be aided additionally with the use of various home remedies, which can also help to loosen phlegm and fight the viral infections that are often the cause of productive coughs.

Medical attention should be sought for persistent symptoms or highly pronounced symptoms such as fever and/or a poor general condition.

  • 01
    Drink plenty of fluids – ideally around 2 to 3 litres of water or tea per day (e.g. thyme or fennel tea). This will help replace lost fluids and can help to make your cough more productive.
    02
    Inhalations with salt (one tablespoon of salt in about one litre of boiling water) help to moisturize your mucous membranes and to make your cough more productive. Inhalations with herbs or essential oils can also be used for their further benefits. For example, chamomile has anti-inflammatory properties.
  • 03
    Stay warm without perspiring. Warm chest compresses or hot-water bottles are ideal. Keeping your chest warm promotes good circulation and therefore also loosens the phlegm.
    04
    Rub cold ointment onto your chest and back. The contained essential oils (such as eucalyptus and thyme) act expectorant, antibacterial and antispasmodic.
  • 05
    Air your home regularly. In order to prevent the mucous membranes in the airways from drying out, make sure the air humidity in your home is sufficient.
    06
    Get plenty of sleep. When we sleep, our immune systems have time to gather strength and essential regeneration processes take place.
