to get rid of a cough:

suck on some cough drops;

gargle on some warm (lukewarm) water and some salt- lots of salt if severe

wash hands frequently with out germ-x (hand sanitizer)

get more hours of sleep than usual

gulp down a spoonfull of honey before bed

eat some ice-cream if throat is dry

try to drink some hot (not like burning up hot but pretty warm) tea

take a rest! watch some tv... dont be active

when you cough- if it hurts: gargle with warm salt water more often

if your cough gets worse of lasts more than a week- GO SEE YOUR DOCTOR
