Coughing is an important reflex that helps protect your airway and lungs against irritants. Occasional coughing is normal, however, a cough that is persistent or associated with other symptoms like shortness of breath, mucus or phlegm production could indicate a more serious medical problem. A persistent cough is not normal and should always be brought to your doctor's attention.
Coughs due to colds (the common cold) are among the most common reasons to see a pharmacist or family doctor. In children, cough along with fever is considered the most common symptom in all age groups. A cough can be very stressful on the body and can affect overall well-being considerably.
There are several types of coughs:
Triggered by excessive mucus.
Dry, Tickling Cough
Occurs when the throat doesn’t produce enough mucus, resulting in throat irritation.
Produces yellow-grey phlegm and is normally accompanied by cold-like symptoms such as stuffy nose, headache, and fatigue.
Initially presents with mild, cold-like symptoms that persist into severe coughing episodes (and even wheezing) over the course of a few weeks – this cough is highly contagious, especially for children.

Healing properties of thyme
Thyme has been used for centuries as a medicinal herb to aid a host of different ailments. Today, modern herbal medicine has also claimed thyme as a valuable plant for coughs and colds, upper respiratory infections, bronchitis, and whooping cough. With its antibacterial, antifungal and antispasmodic effects, thyme fights agents that cause bronchitis and helps to subdue coughs. Thyme leaves contain compounds called flavonoids that relax the throat muscles involved in coughing and lessen inflammation. It helps to relax bronchial muscles and tame a spasmodic cough with its calming properties. Thyme works as a first-rate expectorant that helps the body loosen and thin mucus, making it easier to cough up and expel. Healing properties of thyme include:
