10 CowboyXuliver The lining of your throat is swollen and irritated. The air going by bothers it a lot making it think something very small is stuck in your throat causing you to cough. The cough drop contains one of more of the following: - Something like sugar that coats the throat so air doesn't irritate it. - Something like menthol that reduces the swelling making it less irritated. - Something that numbs the throat so it can't feel the air go by. The really good but usually horribly tasting cough drops do all three.
