A substance similar to that found in the cough syrups is found in hot red pepper. Use red (cayenne) pepper with caution-it can irritate your tummy.

I also use this for the start of a cold and congestion. If you put lots of it in a soup with other vegetables it shouldn't irritate your stomach. I don't know how or why it works but it sure makes me feel so much better.

I dip a spoon into a jar of honey and then top with Cayenne pepper ( a good coating. ) stir it up in the dip of the spoon with the tines of a fork until it is mixed up pretty well. Then swallow. Tastes not bad, like honey with a kick afterwards, in a few secs. Seems to calm cough...
