Athletes foot and coughs

Having just about cured my athletes foot (brought about by leaky wellies) with dilute cider vinegar, I wonder if anyone has treated coughs with thyme, honey and lemon.
My poor hubby is a bit reluctant but HE is the one with the cough!

I would often make honey and lemon, but more likely to add whisky than thyme.

He may prefer whisky! But I did read that thyme was a good addition.

Well they are both antiseptics. Go with the one the man likes (or do belt and braces and use both)

add echinacea and/or garlic too.
Jamanda

garlic? That would make it taste vile.

You don't have to put it in the tea/drink. Just make sure you eat some. Laughing

Incidentally, thyme, licorice and innula syrup is fab for a cough.

It can't do him any harm, so why not just try?

Funny enough he does eat garlic - raw cloves - uurgh!
