I have a bad cold and a very chesty cough at the minute. Feeling rather ill. :cry: Do you suffer with this often at all ? What remedy's do you use and find that works. I find sucking wine gums helps with the cough. For a cold i'll have warm lemonade with two paracetomels. I've always thought this was the best remedy. Things like lemsips don't do anything. And cough medicine is just sugar.
