I’ve been suffering from cough for quite awhile since I caught the flu bug from Alicia earlier in the year.
This is one of the drinks I tried brewing in my desperate attempt to get well. I’m not sure how many times I’m supposed to drink it before I get well, but I only tried twice and I stopped – cough didn’t go away, but phlegm did though. 🙂
Anyway, my doctor just told me yesterday that my cough is more likely due to throat and airway sensitivity so he didn’t prescribe me with new cough syrup; instead he offered me medication for my throat. I hope it works!
