- Treating a Chesty Cough
Often described as a 'productive' cough - because it can actually produce something – a chesty cough can be eased with a type of cough mixture known as an 'expectorant'.
These can help a chesty cough be more productive by loosening the mucus so that it is easier to expel.
While coughing up a small amount of mucus is useful if you have a chesty cough, if blood comes up or there are large amounts of yellow or green mucus or phlegm, you should see your doctor.
