What meds or home remedies would help?

My nose is clear but my throat is sore and I feel like I am just swallowing snot non stop. When I cough I usually cough up snot and have to spit it in a tissue. I don't know what meds to take. I took some nasal decongestant but it didn't do anything to it.

  • Use an antihistamine to stop the post nasal drip - something like Claritin (it's 24 hour, non-drowsy). The tea with honey & lemon will help the sore throat, but the antihistamine will stop the cause of it. ;o)

  • For your throat, mix equal parts honey (anti-bacterial) and cayenne (anti-inflammatory).

    For the congestion, lots of peppermint tea (peppermint is a natural decongestant.
