How does honey relieve cough if it goes down esophagus but the cough comes from the trachea?


Honey and tea “soothe” irritation in throat but how?

In: 7

The itching sensation that people associate with that sort of cough happens before the esophagus and trachea split. Its why even drinking water or sucking on a lozenge can help with an itchy throat. A warm beverage with honey will help. Even yogurt can help. I remember watching a live broadcast of a radio show and all the host had honey and yogurt in front or near them.

But if a person is sick and has a lot of mucus build up in the lungs or trachea, that stuff is really just a minor remedy. It whys cough syrups have an expectorant in them.
