This bug is pretty powerful but I doubt my cough travelled that far

This is going to sound strange but when you've put Vicks on your chest, rub some on the soles of your feet. It helps a lot for night time coughs. Not sure why, got the tip from a friend a few years ago. Hope you feel better soon

I had heard that, too...I did put it on my feet and no coughing woke me up last night. Don't know why it works, but It's starting up again since I woke up. I really don't want to go to work smelling like a eucalyptus tree...

Do you get Lennons Dutch medicine there by you?
Borsdruppels works like a bomb! And it doesn't smell like eucalyptus
