For yucky chronic nasal drainage (the kind you constantly have to clear your throat but can't do anything about because it is viral and must just run it's course because anti-biotics would be worthless), buy some chamomile tea bags, regular size, brand name(s) do not matter, brew about 3.5 minutes in the microwave, add a tiny amount of milk (just enough to change it's color) and 1.5 tablespoons of honey. That's it. My 10 year old son and I do it before bed since honey has a sleep inducing effect and we both sleep soundly through the night. He wasn't sure about the tea the first night but now he requests it regularly but I save it as 'special' tea when we both get the yucky crap. It really is simple but I promise you it works and tastes so much better than Ny-quil, not that I could get him to take Ny-quil w/o upchucking (even the large pills of it gag him). Give it a try a few nights and you'll see what I mean.
