A cough potion is a healing potion which alleviates the symptoms of an irritated throat by soothing and reducing coughing.[1][2]

History

During the 1989–1990 school year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Professor Severus Snape taught his sixth years how to concoct this particular brew in Potions class.[2]

In 1996, Fred and George Weasley repackaged their Love Potion as perfumes or cough potions so that they could be smuggled into Hogwarts, as Filch had forbid Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes products on school grounds the previous year.[1]
