I grew up in a land of cold winters. Harsh, snowy conditions and high wind chill are a terrific combo for conjuring up rough, hacking coughs. Not a desirable scenario, but manageable, even without a doctor visit in many cases.
I was in no way compensated for this post, though it does contain affiliate links. I just plain love the product.
An older gentleman neighbor introduced my family to Fisherman’s Friend, an over-the-counter cough drop created in 1865 for English fisherman. The original menthol and eucalyptus lozenge is strong enough to numb your taste buds as it soothes a sore throat and suppresses coughing.
If you’re looking for a more palatable option, though I do highly recommend the originals, try cherry or extra strong mint. Husband and I pick these up at the supermarket every time we get a cough & can’t recommend them highly enough.
My mother loves them so much that when she visited in September she bought a few bags of her own to take home. Fisherman’s Friend are sold in drug stores, supermarkets and online. Apparently they’re even a hit here in the tropics, since the grocery store keeps them in stock, much to my delight.
