Lamest post of the night- i am sick and cant stop coughing. I've been using cough drops and drinking water like crazy. we have no cough medicine or honey (yes i failed but we ran out and i was hoping i wouldn't need anymore) also i don't drink at all, so no alcohol.

anyone know of any home remedies?

Df just moved to the couch and I've woken dd up twice :--/ any suggestions or tips would be appreciated!!

Eta- thank you so much everyone!! Pickle juice and hot water with sugar helped. I really appreciate all of your help :)

Hot tea? Run a hot shower for steam, sit in the bathroom and close the door?  Eat greasy food so it helps coat your throat (lol just throwin' ideas out there!!)  Run up to Walgreens if there's one near you? lol I'm sorry, I hate coughing fits. :(

Does it feel like you are trying to cough up phlegm? I would recommend Mucinex with the cough suppressant.

I think tea is a great idea! Thank you for your help :)
