Is coughing at midnight always due to a cold?
There is a popular belief that if you keep coughing in the middle of the night, it must be a cold cough. However, it is not necessarily the case! Traditional Chinese medicine differentiates cough types based on their symptoms.
A cold cough, also known as a wind-cold cough, is characterized by throat discomfort, white-colored phlegm, nasal congestion, runny nose, and relatively clear nasal discharge. It is often caused by exposure to wind and cold.
To relieve a cold cough, it is recommended to dispel wind and eliminate cold, soothe the lungs, and stop coughing. One can consume moderate amounts of ingredients with warming properties to disperse cold, soothe the lungs, resolve phlegm, and stop coughing. Examples of such ingredients include raw ginger, scallion whites, coriander, dried citrus peel, garlic, and perilla leaves.
