Good afternoon, thanks for the question


Inflammation of the throat mucosa causes an itchy coughing response. At night it will be more triggering the onset of cough due to environmental factors that are more frequent in the room. The lying position is also more or less influential. In addition, excessive coughing will also trigger a gag reflex.


To overcome this, you should not use a fan during sleep, and it is better to use an air humidifier or air humidifier. Drinking warm water can also relieve an itchy throat, or use a higher pillow so that throat mucus does not accumulate causing itchy throat. To overcome inflammation in the throat can be by gargling warm water or antiseptic mouthwash to maintain oral hygiene, maintain endurance by eating nutritious foods, fruits, or supplements, not smoking, avoid eating foods that can irritate the throat such as fried foods.


If the cough lasts for more than one month continuously then do further consultation with your doctor to be able to do a physical examination and get adequate treatment.


That's all, hope you can help. Wassalam.
