1. Drink honey and lemon in hot water. Add a bit of brandy.

2. You should get that checked out.

I've heard that a persistent cough could be a sign of a serious health problem.

3. It will be about 2 more weeks at least before it totally clears up. If you've got no other symptoms

all you can do is treat it with mild cough syrup such as a suppressive and something to make it productive, the Tussin family types, generic versions. Drinks loads and loads of water and keep taking very deep, lung expanding breaths.

If it starts to get painful in the chest area or changes, see your doctor for an anti-bacterial.

Change your bed linens often, get a couple new toothbrushes and sterilize them in the dishwasher between uses; wash your hands a lot and disinfect the surfaces you touch every day, such as your phone, keyboard, fridge handles, anything you touch in the kitchen and even in your car! Especially in the bathroom, change your towels, etc, otherwise you could keep re-infecting yourself. Do the same at your workplace. Disinfectant wipes for your oft-used office surfaces, phone, etc.

I know it sounds over the top, but that's what you have to do!

4. The Cough Is Nearly All Gone

But what do I do with the big nosed penguin following me around?
