Honey and lemon


Yep, it's another classic, but that old honey and lemon combo really does help to get rid of those tickly coughs that pop up when you have a cold.

According to Louise, the honey coats the throat and relieves that irritation.

You can buy over-the-counter remedies for that pesky cough, which Louise says have limited use. There are two types - cough suppressants which work on your brain to hold back the cough reflex, and expectorants which help to bring phlegm up. Gross but effective.
