I got real sick just before Christmas...I thought I was getting better but now I have this awful cough! My ribs are starting to hurt from coughing so much! Dang it!

Any helpful tips out there for my cough? I can't take cold medicine.

Aww that's terrible. I hate coughing. Maybe try hot tea with honey and lemon and a shot of whiskey.

Make a tea out of oregano and gargle it 3 or 4 times a day. Oregano has antiinflamitory properties and kills bacteria. Also honey kills bacteria and can calm a cough

I got sick right before Christmas too and even lost my voice. I'm just now getting better. Hope your feeling better soon too.

I drink honey tea. Coughs can last a long time. Hope you feel better soon.

 I am starting to get the cough here.  I was up part of  the night coughing, sneezing, runny nose and now I think I am starting to get the feel of a sore throat. That scratchy feeling you get at the back of the throat.  What a way to bring in the new year.
