    Hi guys!

    I started university recently, and inevitably I developed a sore throat and a cough. The sore throat is much better than it was, but I'm still suffering from a really irritating tickly cough which just keeps getting worse

    I've taken some tickly cough medicine, but it hasn't helped much. Have you got any other remedies I might be able to try? The constant coughing is driving me mad


    Hot water, mixed with honey and lemon juice. Add some brandy if you have any...

    that works pretty much all the time for me

    Steam, honey and lemon drink, boiled sweets/ cough sweets. Anything like lemsip thats medicated would probably be overkill, but if it's really annoying you could try it if you want. Just be sure to get the right type. Otherwise you basically just have to keep your throat moist and wait it out.
