    Hey. I'm currently recovering from some weird 24 hour flu thing where my joints ached and my head and ears and ached and my throat was sore. I feel completely better now apart from my throat is kinda itchy and it's making me cough every few minutes which is making me light headed. I'd usually just accept it and wait for it to pass but in the next couple if days I have assessments which are under exam conditions and my coughing will probably irritate and distract my classmates so I was wondering if there are any ways to get rid of this itchiness or any kind of medicines that would work on this. My throat isn't sore or anything it's just itchy haha. I can practically feel the six pack emerging from all this coughing haha. I also can't bring any drinks or anything into the assessment because it's in a chemistry lab so health and safety and all that haha. Thank you.

    Beechams All in One is really effective for this kind of thing (for me at least). Once, on holiday in Wales, i had a really bad flu and subsequent painful coughing for a week, took one dose of this stuff and within half an hour i'd forgot i'd even been ill.

    Super stuff. http://www.chemistdirect.co.uk/beech...d_24645831011_
