Prevention of Cough
Smoking should be stopped. Drink a lot of water and avoid unhealthy surroundings and crowded places where people with upper respiratory tract infections are bound to be present. Avoid smoke particles and dusty places as well.

Treatment for Cough
Coughs are not necessarily dangerous. If you have a simple dry cough with a running nose, then they are the classical symptoms of a common cold which can be easily cured by merely waiting.

Over treating a common cold with drugs is not advisable as it is a protective mechanism and hence should not be stopped. The therapies may end up masking a deeper underlying problem. Use conventional or alternative cough remedies for no longer than seven to 10 days, and preferably only for temporary relief from night–time coughing.
