    What kind of tricks and home remedies do you peeps and wimmens yo have to get rid of a cough? It's like a lame little cold thing. Lump in the throat, a bit of phlegm, easily tired. Tea is going down like crazy, and that helps for a bit, the same with a really hot shower (steam). What else?

    Been wanting to know the same as well... been coughing since I was in the desert (2.5 months ago). Silly military docs don't know what it is. It's a good thing it wasn't TB, I'd be dead now from it or somethin.

    Might be... I know whatever it is isn't bacterial, phlegm pretty much clear. Caugh is most the time unproductive, sometimes productive :(

    Anywho... /HIJACK

    During that time of year when I get a little (or big) cough, I always take the 2/3 glass hot water, 2 tbs apple cider vinigar and enough honey to make it drinkable, stuff kicks ass in cold weather!

    I hate taking cold medicine cause it always seemed to make me feel worse. This will not cure your cold, but if your chest is congested, this is a drug free way to help your coughs be more productive if you do it a few days in a row.

    If you want to loosen the crap in your chest try a steam bowl. Boil some water in a large pot and add a little bit of vicks vapor rub (after the boiling water is off the stove). Place the pot on a table, put yer head over the pot and cover your head and the pot with a large towel (to make a tent of sorts). Breathe deeply for at least 10 to 15 minutes. You might want to keep your eyes closed at first.

    Some people will run the hot water and fill up a sink instead :dunno:

    Hope ya feel better soon :)

    Probably why you have a cold in the first place. :wink1: My home remedy consists of 1 shot of Jagermeister and 1 shot of Nyquil.

    that stuff dont do ****!

    every one sings it prases so they seam tough to put up with the oh so strong buckley's,



    i get a cough take vitamin C and get some echanatha (sp i have no idea) and drop a few drop in some juice, and your better quicker.

    sore throught? gargal with warmto hot water with a tea spoon of salt in it. Really works

    I don't know, but short shorts don't help me play drums! :haha:

    I've done my years of cross-country, and I've spent more time than you know in short shorts. And I don't think running ever helped me get better from being sick...
