This rather singular remedy is ideal for certain cough symptoms when dryness is very aggravating. Spongia can bring great relief to dry mucus membranes from the mouth to the trachea, that leads to dry, barking, croupy coughs with intense spasmodic hacking, sore throats with a burning sensation, hoarseness, difficult breathing and eventually, heavy fatigue. Spongia conditions improve with humidity, a hot shower and warm food and drink; they worsen with dry, cold wind and exertion. Spongia can do the most for defiant and high-spirited people who sleep into their aggravations, so they feel worse in the morning.
