    I've had a stuffy noise, cough and sore throat for a week. I've gone through the Dayquil and Nyquil stash that I brought when I moved from the US. In Denmark, there's not a whole lot of over the counter stuff available. I had double pink eye over the weekend, which seems to have cleared up...

    I just wanted to give 2 very enthusiastic :thumb::thumb: for using straight ol' out of the cupboard honey for a sore throat. I got up during the night, night before last with the worst case of pharangitis that I have ever had (I tend to get it over other bad sore throats). I've always had to...
