Dry nagging cough with tickle in throat???
I've had a cold/cough for over a week. My cough has been productive so the OTC cough meds have been controlling it. However tonight my cough has been non productive and just a dry nagging cough with that irritating tickle in the back of my throat that causes me to cough more. I have tried everything to control it. Delsum didn't work, cough drops didn't work, mucinex didn't work and I was so irritated and just wanted to sleep but couldn't stop coughing long enough to do anything. So, I tried honey and saliva and not sure how it did but it worked and I haven't coughed a bit! Super simple fix!
Just got my mouth super wet with my saliva and then put about a tablespoon (give or take) of organic raw honey (great value brand) in my mouth and swished it around with the saliva and swallowed. I know it might sound gross but it has worked wonders for me and I haven't coughed a bit for almost an hour. So now I'm going to lay down and sleep but keeping the honey on my bedside table!! Hope this helps someone in need!!
