Dr. Mandel Sher Had A Fit!

Dr. Mandel Sher had a fit! – A coughing fit similar to the experience of people with Chronic Cough and patients at Center for Cough.  He had an upper respiratory infection five weeks ago and is experiencing residual cough.  Since his is related to a post-viral acute cough, Dr. Sher quieted his cough by slowly dissolving a menthol lozenge in his mouth. A chronic cough, on the other hand, is soothed by lozenges with pectin as the main ingredient because they are lubricating.  Different cough causes and triggers have different treatments.  It is important to know your specific cough profile.
