Your question: Hi Moreless
When taking the peroxide squirts from the inhaler my boyfriend always coughs and spits up phlegm. I was told that it was because of all the years when he had smoked and that its the stuff coming out of his lungs from smoking.
Sometimes he gets on a coughing jag and it makes his stomach hurt really bad and he also feels congested like its a dry cough most of the time until he can spit up the phlegm.
My question is -- Is there something I can give him to relieve the dry coughing and congested feeling???
I keep telling him that he pretty much has to deal with it until all the phlegm comes up from the smoking he had done it the past and until his lungs heal. But I am not sure I am right in telling him this.
Answer: He needs to get rid of the phlegm !
It may help him to gargle the Milk of Magnesia with some peppermint oil in it thru-out the day?
You may also try rubbing some Pure Pepermint Oil below his nose real litely so when he breaths in that he may inhale some of the vapours?
Also you may try rubbing the peppermint oil on his chest?
If you try any of these, be very careful and start with just a small amount at 1st to see his reaction and if it helps then you may continue?
Let us know his reaction?
Edit: If his Adrenals are Damaged he may not react well to the Pure Peppermint Oil under his nose or rubbed on his chest, but should be ok with the Milk of magnesia gargle?
Smile Tis your choice.
