how do you get rid of a cough in 5 minutes

A persistent cough is painful and frustrating. It can be caused by everything from a dry throat to sinus drainage to asthma. The key to combating your cough quickly is selecting the right solution for your type of cough. Reach for fluids. As with any illness staying hydrated is your first line of defense against coughing. If your cough stems from a dry throat a little hydration might be all you need. Even if your cough is caused by something else drinking plenty of fluids is never a bad idea.

Make the fluids warm. For certain coughs such as ones caused by congestion or sinus drainage warm liquids can be even more effective than cold or room temperature ones.

Try saltwater. Particularly in cases of cold or flu related coughs salt water is your friend.

Consider steam in some cases. Conventional wisdom often dictates that steam from a shower or a humidifier can help combat a cough. however thats only the case if your cough is due to dry air.
