    Home remedies - swear by real honey and lemon in hot water. Also gargle with a soluble paracetamol.

    Hi misssmcc,

    I'm afraid that asking for or offering advice on remedies (even natural ones) is not allowed on these forums so I'm going to have to close this thread. I hope you feel better soon.


    Hi, Martin’s asked me to post this: Sorry, giving or asking for medical advice is not permitted on this forum as it’s not what this site is about. While discussing medical insurance policies, cheaper ways to see consultants, cashback for alternative health treatments and how to get specific medication cheaper (legally) are all perfectly acceptable we ask you specifically not to discuss what to do in the event of certain medical problems (please see this rule on the Health Board). If you have any questions about this policy please email [EMAIL="forumteam&#64;"][email protected][/EMAIL].
