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.
