ebola If typical DXM Hbr preparations (like the Vicks 440) aren't lasting long enough, you could try a syrup containing DXM polystirex (brand name, Delsym) instead. this should last roughly twice as long.

rabid_child slippery elm bark tea. Tastes like butt, but its smoooth goin' down!

Thayers Slippery Elm Bark lozenges are good, they taste sort of nutty. Their "Two Trees" ones are elm bark + maple and are quite yummy. I've not had the cherry or tangerine.

Setting up a humidifier with or without vicks vapo steam in it can help a lot. So can getting a vaporpatch (triaminic makes them, and so does vicks, but the triaminic ones are cheaper and work just as well. just ignore the child on the box) and sticking it on your throat. Metholated Fun!

spud If I get a dry itchy cough I live on soya yohurt in instalments. It doesn't cure it exactly, but it kind of coats the throat for a while to stop it becoming a spasm or getting itchier.

cookingVeg It's not going to stop your cough, but ginger tea is lovely and soothing. Peel and slice some fresh ginger, pour boiling water over it, let it steep for 5 minutes (it'll just sink to the bottom -- don't bother straining it) and then add some sweetener (maple syrup, agave syrup, sugar, whatever) and lemon juice.

I hope you feel better soon.

GhostUser Does anyone know a good remedy for a bad cough. I know it it's not infectious but its just a bad, usually relatively dry, annoying, lasts for days kinda cough. Before I became vegan I used to have honey which seemed to soothe it for awhile, but I'm not exactly the biggest honey fan in the world now. I tried Vicks 44 Cough Syrup but it helps for about an hour then my cough comes back.
