  • Cough Drops and tylenol is about it. Try some white tea...that might help and it is safe for pregnancy (as long as it isn't herbal).

  • our proven treatment:
    Shot of the hottest water you can stand to drink
    1/8 tsp of Cheyanne pepper (we used powdered Hablanero)
    honey to taste (we use about 1 tbsp) If you are preg you could use simple syrup
    lemon juice (about a tbsp)

    Mix it together and shoot it!
