  • Eucalyptus oil is a great one for this.. it's a natural antibacterial, so it won't hurt you, just add a few drops to steaming hot water and breathe it in.
    The other thing I would suggest is "percussion" and no, I don't mean play the drums:) Have your SO or some adult, cup their hand and using that, play drums on your back while you lie on your stomach. It actually helps to loosen the phlem (isn't that just a horrible word? lol)
    Hope this helps and I hope you feel better soon!!!!:)

  • You can use Benadryl to help dry up all that gunk. Had to do that with our 20 month old.
