I've got a really irritating cough that appeared on Wed & is not going. I'm trying to drink lots of fluids but wondered if there's anything anyone would recommend, thanks

Have you tried that glycerine linctus? Boots do it in black currant or honey and lemon I think. It's not amazing but it's better than nothing.

I use the lemon linctus last time but I thought I'd used that for a sore throat & don't remember it being great. Just had a hot lemon squash & that seems to have helped a little but don't want to drink too much!!

Would some honey and lemon in hot water help?

I've been taking the linctus from Boots but it's not really touched it. Hot honey and lemon and plenty of fluid are the only things helping really.

Thanks ladies, at inlaws this weekend but will pick up lemons & honey tomorrow. Hot lemon squash seems to work for a short time too (although drinking lots & coughing is reminding me that despite my best efforts I didn't do well with my pelvic floor exercises last pregnancy!!)
