Understanding wet coughs

The trick to treating a cough is to understand what type of cough it is. Coughs are generally either dry or wet, and are either productive (produces mucus) or non-productive (doesn’t produce mucus).

A wet cough is caused by excessive mucus in the lungs and airways and you may have difficulty coughing out the phlegm.

Choose the right medication for the type of cough

It is important to select the correct type of medication for your cough to avoid the risk that you may make your condition worse. Expigen is suitable for wet coughs, as it contains ammonium chloride, which acts as an expectorant. This thins out the mucus so one can cough it up.

The safety factor

Expigen is safe for the whole family to use and for children aged 3 and older. Expigen is the most recommended cough mixture by gynaecologists.
