Cough Treatment Options
Coughing is a normal reaction to clear our throats from phlegm and other irritants. However, persistent cough usually has an underlying cause such as colds, allergies, sinus infections, viral or bacterial infections, or even gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
Depending on the cause of the cough, different cough medicine may be prescribed. For colds, allergies and sinus infections, over-the-counter cough medicine may suffice, but bacterial infections will require antibiotics. Lifestyles and home remedies such as drinking warm fluids, sucking on cough drops or hard candies, taking honey, moisturising the air and avoiding tobacco smoke may also help to ease your cough.
While cough usually goes away in a week or two, chronic cough can last eight weeks or longer (or four weeks in children). Besides being an annoyance, chronic cough can interrupt sleep, and even cause vomiting, lightheadedness and even rib fractures. If your cough doesn’t go away, work with your doctor to identify the underlying cause and get the right cough medicine.
How to get Cough Medicine
To get the right medicine for cough, you will need to get a prescription from your local general practitioner or clinic. With a prescription on hand, you can then get your medication from your local pharmacies, polyclinics or public hospitals in Singapore.
Those with chronic cough can expect several follow-up consultations with your doctor to monitor your condition, pinpoint the underlying cause and make changes to the cough medicine if required.
Individuals will usually need to make a physical trip to clinics or pharmacies to get the cough medicine.

What our customers say
Right from the start from signing up for an account, to making a booking on the app, to the confirmation of a Care Asst and to the whole visit concluding, its all a seamless and worry free process. Loved this service and would recommend it to anyone who requires the extra pair of hands and legs
Have been using this for a year to help my grandfather who frequently gets aspiration pneumonia and has difficulty leaving the house. The app is so easy to use, and the cherry on top is the wonderful service behind the app. Had some difficulty finding a doctor recently and Hakim called me back personally twice to ensure a doctor was found. Thank you so much, cannot recommend this app more.
Very responsive app, with options to chat with caregiver, review reports and contact support team for assistance.
My mum’s helper was hospitalised suddenly and I needed urgent help to take care of my mum who has advanced dementia. Homage was able able to find caregivers for my mum within a very short notice. The caregivers possessed the skill sets that I had requested and were of great help to me in my time of need. Thank you Homage!
Homage CP render their professional service to my dad who is a dialysis patient. CP assigned to wheel my dad to & fro from Dialysis Center within 300m walking distance. They are capable to load & unload my dad from wheelchair independently. They are friendly too. I'm looking forward to their next visit.
Had a good experience with Homage's teleconsultation. The doctor is qualified, friendly and guided me on examination. She also explained my symptoms to me in detail, which is useful. The report provided has detailed information, and medicine was delivered to me on the same day even though my appointment was in the evening.
Response from Homage is fast. And the physiotherapist assigned is professional in assessing and guiding my mom in her session.
