Coughing makes it difficult for us to concentrate, and also it annoys every single person around you.Children have a weak immune system, which is why they are more prone to coughs and colds.Cough syrups are tasty, but all they do is suppressing the pathway of signals in the brain that triggers severe coughing. Most syrups has codeine and dextromethorphan. These help you fall asleep, and come packed with side-effects such as drowsiness, headache, and rapid heartbeat.
It is better for you to use natural homemade wraps instead of drowning yourself in cough syrups.
