Suffering from hacking cough, raw throat, the sniffles


Recommended Posts

I'm on Day 5 and all is well except I'm sick!  I've had a cough and sore throat since Day 2, which has worsened, and now I also have sneezing, congestion, and the sniffles.  I can't find a cough syrup, cough drops, or throat lozenges that don't have sugar.  I've read other posts and followed the advice (lots of broth, lots of tea, and several kinds of "throat-soothing" or "respiratory wellness" teas) but am getting worse.  My cough is horrible -- I sound like a seal.  What else can I do?

I'm so sorry.

 

There may be nothing to do but wait it out. Just know that consuming cough syrup or sucking on lozenges would not magically make you feel better or stop coughing. They are what we are in the habit of doing, but they don't really make it all better.
