Gargling with warm salt water isn’t much fun. I’ve been doing it once or twice a day to alleviate a sore throat. I’ve also been eating some local honey and occasionally sipping on some Rock & Rye at bedtime. Both are much more enjoyable than the salt water.
I’ve been suffering from a cold for almost three weeks. After trying some over-the-counter medicines that made me dizzy, I went to a family practice clinic last week to get a prescription for a nasal spray. Although the spray certainly helps, I am still coughing a lot and my throat still gets sore.
Many people in this area use a Neti pot to rinse their sinuses. I’ve been using my hand. I put some warm water in the palm of my hand and snort it. When I blow it out, some unsightly discharge comes with it.
