My throat had been doing so much better and I was down to a mild cough kept in check with liberal application of occasional cough drops. Until late this afternoon when I had a relentless coughing fit so hard I almost threw up. And now my throat is back to hurting when I breathe too vigorously, nevermind hurting when I swallow at all.

stoopid cold.

Bleah. Hope the cold vacates soon.

If you can, hot tea with honey. Also, I heartily recommend the Traditional Medicinals brand of herbal teas/tisanes. Their Gypsy Cold Care has been my goto for sinus congestion of all sorts for years. I don't use their cough suppressant mixes because licorice is good for coughs and I *hate* licorice, but I've heard/read good things about them.

Available on Amazon.

I'm sorry to hear this - and full of empathy as I just had a very similar sick-then improving-then back to brutal coughing again cycle. I hope you get better quickly.

That sucks, I'm sorry.

ETA: I had a milder version of this earlier in the season and I finally had to use the Chloraseptic spray directly on my throat for a couple days until it calmed the heck down. Dunno if you can tolerate that (lots of folks can't) but if so, maybe it's an option...
