I greatly appreciate your help with the symptom.

You may try SPONGIA TOSTA 30C once every 4 hours for 2 days maximum.

Wait and watch your response for next 2 days.

This is not a curative remedy but will give you temporary relief with your symptoms. You may have to change remedy once your symptoms change.

Thank you so much. I am not sure local pharmacy would have this remedy. This seems to be unique in its name mostly they carry famous remedy. In that case I have to place online order.that can up to week for delivery. If that is the case can I use any other remedy for interim period.

Your dry spasmodic cough worse before midnight better with warm drinks points only to this remedy. It is quite a common remedy for dry cough in children. I feel you should get it in any homeopathic shop.

Once your symptoms change, you may need something else.

Thanks to you 90 % of cough is gone. Exposure to cold air in night time make it worse. Day time few times here and there I cough. I have to sleep by keeping windows closed to keep room warm.
What is your advice.

Thank you so much.

There's nothing peculiar in this new modality so can't suggest anything if the nature of cough and other general symptoms are not known.

Why can't you keep your room warm by keeping windows closed? Do you feel any suffocation?
