Post best cough drops

I am recovering from a real bad case of sore throat. Right now I am slightly better but I still have a cough. Is there such a thing as the "best" cough drops?

another thing. My nodes are swollen and are the reason why i cannot shallow. Would it be wise to ice my neck in order to stop the swelling?

If you have a regular sore throat Fisherman's friend helps alot, they're really strong and some people I know don't like them because of that. That's what I always, always use. But, if it's something like strepthroat, they don't touch it.

hi , cold eeze is not really a cough drop but it has zinc in it, its a lozenger and it helps the severity of a cold, if you start taking right away it is suppose to make the cold symptoms less, but as far as cough drops, they all are the same, i like the Robitussin ones it comes in orange and berry, there not bad tasting and it seems to help. I also tried the Riccola ones, but I dont think there as good as the robitussin ones.
