It can. I had the flu 3 weeks ago and this worked, it helped me breathe better and it cleared my throat. But an even better drink for a cough (better tasting to me) is ginger tea.

Here are directions for making Ginger Tea:

Buy fresh ginger root from the grocery or health food store and get a piece about the size of the palm of your hand. The fresher the better. I determine the freshness by breaking off a piece. The skin should be tight and when you break a piece, it should snap off. If it's weak, softer and doesn't have a crisp, clean break, it's old.

Always wash ginger well. Although some people peel it, I leave the skin on without peeling it. I do cut off the gnarly, dark edges though.

Break or cut off a piece about the size of your thumb and slice it thinly.

Once the ginger is prepared, here are two simple ways to use it to make ginger tea:

1 - Put the ginger slices in a pot of room temperature water and turn up the heat until it boils. As soon as it boils, take it off the heat and let it cool for 5 - 10 minutes.

2 - Put the ginger slices in a cup. Boil some water, and add the hot water to your cup of ginger and let steep for 5 - 10 minutes.

I don't strain the pieces of ginger out (I leave them in and like to chew on them when finished with the tea). Then, just before you drink it, while it's still hot, squeeze in an entire lemon and add a tiny pinch of ground cayenne pepper and mix it up. Do not add honey or any sweetener. That should do the trick.
