how to treat a cough


with regular doses of honey by the spoonful
a salt water gargle as often as you can as hot as you can
a bathroom full of steam & vicks vapo rub or eucalyptus
vicks on yr chest & throat
sleep when you can manage it
quiet in between the coughing fits
masala chai heated on the stove with milk then add honey
menthol lozenges carried around in yr pocket
orange jello, lemon pudding, quiche & other wet foods, if you must a nutrition shake
freezie pops
cool, humid air
water, water, water & more water
