Coughing is one of the biological defense reactions to expel foreign substances from the trachea,
but discomforting coughing can also lead to exhaustion of physical strength.
Taking measures for prevention on a daily basis is crucial.

Before your cough gets worse
Prevention is the key.


Viruses and bacteria taken in from the air may adhere to the mucous membrane of the throat. Make it a habit to gargle, especially when you get home, to prevent viruses and bacteria from entering your body. Gargling with mouthwash or tea is also recommended.


Hands that come in contact with anything can carry viruses and bacteria. Wash your hands frequently with soap and hot water. Always keep your hands clean by washing between your fingers, the bases of your thumbs, and up to your wrists.

Regular hydration

The throat plays a role in expelling foreign substances such as viruses and bacteria, but when the throat is dry, this functionality declines. Hydrate yourself frequently and keep your throat moist. Don’t forget to control the humidity in your room during dry seasons.

“I want to cough...” In such circumstances,
follow coughing etiquette.

Wear a mask.
(Cover your mouth and nose.)

Cover your mouth and nose
with a tissue or handkerchief.

Cover your mouth and nose with your sleeve.
