Sometimes at the end of a cold I will get this and I noticed my poor DS does also, it has made him throw up several times and I'm practically gagging myself here at work.

It's like the throat tickles and forces you to cough. It is worse at night. I have been drinking water, chewing gum, nothing is helping.
I don't have any cough drops with me but don't think they will help much anyways.

Will an OTC cough suppressant work, or will that not help with the throat tickle which causes it in the first place? Am I the only one that has this problem? It's so bad right now I can't stop coughing
I sure would like to know what causes it.
