    I pop vitamin C tablets like they're going out of fashion.
    Seems to work, though I have a stinking cold sore on my top lip at the minute. Gah.

    Ohhh, I had a right horrible sore throat just before I got my cold.. it was like there was something stuck right down in the bottem and also felt like someone had got sandpaper and sanded my throat done. Mmmm.

    Any way, you could try something with honey in it. Lcokets may help, also a gargle with warm salty water, pure Tea Tree oil or Listerine will help.

    Deqacane is good if you have a bad sore throat.

    My mum gave me this and it worked really well for the cough

    Apple Cider Vinegar (not normal vinegar that's made from like Coal Tar)

    Warm water and Honey

    I tried it and my cough stopped straight away
