Dispel Cough is indicated for a cough which lingers following an exterior Wind-Cold invasion. The external pathogen has not been completely expelled, therefore, the patient amy still have slight chills, fever and an itchy throat. The externally contracted Wind prevents the Lungs from properly diffusing Qi and fluids, which causes Phlegm production with coughing. This formula was designed to treat Wind-Cold invasion and should not be used to treat a cough due to Heat in the Lungs or from Lung Yin vacuity. This is an important pediatric prescription, as coughs are very common among children due to their weak defensive Qi and vulnerability to Wind attack.
