    I'm dying of a cold at the moment sore throat the lot.
    I normally go for Lemsip and good old lemonade and honey.
    Today my OH went to get some Lemsip for me but the stupid thing has the one sweetner in that I can't have, it isn't even an ingredient I would think would be in it but thanks to the sugar tax it's in everything.
    So anyone got any remedies that doesn't have sweetner in ? We have the Morrison's own capsules but they aren't that good.
    Help lol proper feeling it thanks to fibromyalgia and asthma a cold is not something to just get on with as my symptoms now are always way worse and it's the first bad cold I've had in years thanks to the flu jab ( haven't been organised still trying to find a gp so haven't had my flu jab yet). :wall2:

    Chopped lemons and oranges with a teaspoon of honey, boiled up in lemonade (drink it as hot as you can manage) with a couple of paracetamol is just as good, ideally day nurse as the ephedrine in it should help with your asthma. Also eucalyptus and peppermint essential oils.
