I have a shocking cold and rather a stingy throat and nasty cough. I have already resorted to taking Max Lemsip daytime capsules (concerned though with citric acid) and really WANT to suck something soothing for the throat. I have Strepsils here but dont want to spoil all my efforts by taking them. Does anyone know of anything without sugar that might soothe my throat? Sniff, sniff, cough, cough, splutter!!
