View Full Version : Cough drops or lozengers
I have a dry, sore throat this morning from sinus drainage. I'm drinking plenty of water (it's all I EVER drink) but I'm thinking that a cough drop or lozenger might help to keep my throat from feeling dry and scratchy.
I just don't know what type would be IC friendly. What do you suggest?
I'm a receptionist and I talk all day, so I need something.
Thanks for your input! :thumbsup:

by best guess is read labels.
Good luck.....can you use vicks on your throat instead?? Or is that not strong enough for you?
I never thought about using the Vicks. I'll try that when I'm home and in for the evening.
When I'm reading labels, what should I look for?

I've heard that 12 hour Hold are OK. I know what you mean my allergies are driving me nuts. :hi: Kathi

I have a horrible time when I get any throat irritation. I have to very carefully read labels --- I'm allergic to eucalyptus and menthol so most of the cold remedies are out for me. My mother used to tell folks that I had such a horrible time with colds and that I always got a rash with them --- the reason I was getting the rash is that she was putting Vicks on my chest and I'm allergic to it!
I did find some herbal cough drops I can tolerate, but usually I just use mints.
I had a virus last week that gave me a bad sore throat. I drank hot water with honey. No flare and felt great. Feel better soon.
I've become a total fan of Werthers original hard candies! No IC problems at all from them:thumbsup:
