    Honey as a cough suppressant

    The thread touting Vaporub as a cough suppressant sparked a desire in me to go looking for alternatives for cough suppression. I've been battling a viral sinus infection with a chronic dry cough now for about a month. At times, the cough has been so bad that it's made me spit up or vomit. I...

    Allergic conjunctivitis (and a thank you to Mrs Bucket!)

    First, I want to give a shout out to Mrs Bucket for creating her thread on Sjogern's Syndrome. Had she not done so, I might've ignored my gritty (now watery) eyes. I've been experiencing the gritty, dry eyes for several days now, and it was becoming more than annoying. Since Thanksgiving...

    Canker sores

    I've been plagued by canker sores since I was a child. For those that don't know what they are, they are open sores that occur inside the mouth. Unlike cold sores that occur on the outside of the mouth, canker sores aren't contagious, but they sure are painful! I was curious if anyone has...
