Re: Sick for a week
This can really be a problem after a cold. I have the very same problem also my hubby after just having had bad colds.
Keep taking the cough medicine regularly. You can also try what we do and we find it helps. Cut up a lemon or two and bring to the boil in a saucepan with about 15 fluid ounces of water, simmer for about 15 mins, allow to cool and pour some into a cup and add a full teaspoon of honey and sip slowly. You can heat the remainder up as often as needed.
If the cough causes breathing difficulty then You should see your Dr.
All the best, Solofelix.
