How can I ease a cold/cough?

Any tips, tricks, remedies, etc to help ease a cold/cough? I have a RCS in two days and of course caught what the gremlins sent home from school lol. Looking for the simple things from tea with honey to remedies your family has passed down lol. Anything to help ease this before massive surgery and a new baby.


Rub Vicks VapoRub on your chest and bottom of your feet at night and put socks on afterwards. Eat Chicken noodle soup and drink Gingerale. Put a shot of whisky in your hot tea and honey before going to bed. If you can find it Creolmulsion cough syrup is an old cough medicine. Can be found online.

Crush up a clove of garlic and chew it and eat it. It’s putrid but it works wonders!
