3. Hot Shower
Just like in the case of breathing in steam from a pot, taking a hot shower or bath will do wonders for getting rid of that never-ending cough. To boost the effects of this home remedy, turn on the hot water and close the bathroom door while it runs, in order to allow steam to form. Make sure that after you take the hot bath or shower you get on warm clothing and climb into bed under blankets to avoid any harmful exposure that will aggravate the cough.
