This happens with Thai food, esp. the hot soup with peppers, like tom yum goong, or with a pepper relish condiment (even a wee bit). The pepper just seems to stop midway in my throat and causes a hacking, incessant cough. So embarrassing. So uncomfortable.
How to stop it? Drinking loads of water helps only a tiny bit. Eating sugar -- hey, I was desperate! -- does zilch... Eating a bit of "neutral" pad kee mao noodle, nothing....
Recommendations on how to stop the coughing?
