Doctors in United Kingdom have some new advice for people with coughs. They are advising people not to visit doctor to get treatment. Instead, people who have cough should drink or eat honey or get some medicine from drugstore. The doctors say that in most cases, honey and over--counter medicines will work and people do not need antibiotics. doctors added that most of time, cough will improve on its own within two to three weeks even if you take nothing. Many of us visit doctor at a hospital or clinic if we have cough. Public health officials in England say this is largely waste of time. They say antibiotics do little to make cough go away.
Doctors say we are using antibiotics too much and this can be bad for us. Many viruses and infections are becoming resistant to antibiotics, so medicines are becoming less effective. Doctors say this is leading to creation of superbugs. These can be very dangerous to our health. doctors said honey can be very effective in soothing sore throat and making other symptoms disappear. hot drink with honey is traditional and well-known remedy for coughs and sore throats. People also add lemon or ginger to it. Using honey may be better for children with coughs. Many children do not like taste of medicine but love taste of honey. Younger children generally do not like visiting a doctor.
