My cold started 3 days ago, my throat and glands feeling really sore. At the moment I'm having Meltus cough medecine and paracetemal.
I was coughing quite a lot yesterday which made my chest ache. It's not as bad now but I'm worried about the tickle I get in my throat every so often. It feels really dry and like there's a hair in my throat. It makes me choke, my eyes water, breathing in causes me to choke again, nearly gagging.
It really gets me in a panic
, the way it stops you from breathing and feels like you're gonna choke to death. I never used to get this until about 4 years ago.
Is there anything that can help or prevent it?
I heard about a drug called Zicam which apparently can shorten the length of a cold. Does anyone know if it's available in England? If not a website I can order it from?
