Don’t talk for one. I’d say cough medicine.
Cough drops always help me best.

Coughs usually linger. I recently had a cough and it took about 3 weeks to completely go away. Cough drops will soothe your throat, but a cough medicine with codine with help with the coughing. Drink a lot of water to clear the mucus.

Ask the doctor for a cough syrup with codine in it and I promise you will not cough.

@ goldilocks; re cough syrup w. codine; you may well stop coughing but I don’t think your singing or stage presence will be dynamic. Of course, you won’t notice.

If you do get well before your performance and you sing there is a chance you may get Laryngitis. You may not be 100% well by then, so performing will irritate your throat more.
