Cough Relief

Does anyone have a good suggestion for cough relief? My chest muscles, abdominal muscles, and throat hurt from coughing so much. A dry, hard, useless cough! I am miserable. I tasted my kids cough medicince and shivered forever. Just can't do it. I have tried the Vicks on the feet with socks thing. Worked just okay, but I hate wearing socks! Help!

Is it tightly congested or just annoyingly persistent and unproductive? I do different things for different symptoms.

Hey, I just tried to e-mail you and it didn't go through.

It is annoyingly persistent and unproductive, unless I cough really hard...then a little production.

ugh gross. Ok, so I hate those kinds of coughs. I bet you're getting smoke too and that doesn't help at ALL! Grrr...

so email me at mikeandalli@gmail.com

Wish I had a remedy ... I always try chocolate but it doesn't really help the cough all that much :)

I know we always do this for our kids but forget to do it for ourselves, but I've been using our humidifier for the last week and it helps at night-and the chloroseptic spray helps at night too. other than that, I've just been bearing it throughout the day.
good luck...it STINKS.

Mucinex and my mom says vick vaporub on the feet? Or warm/hot lemon water and slowly sip it.

OR a slurpee!
