for the past 3 years i have been getting this iratating cough, starts when my throat itches if i don't cough my eyes start to burn and water badly, I have taken over the counter allergy pills and it doesnt work, my friend at work, has some zertek i took some and omg! it was amazing! i could breath and i had a great night of sleep, it didnt completing stop the itchy cough but i would say it cut it down about 75%. but the next day i took some more, and it did absalutly nothing, i was misrable. now my coughing is getting so bad that when i cough i have to cough realy hard core to get it to stop itching my throat and burning my eyes.

I was just wondering if anyone else is suffering from these symptoms, and if you are , have you found anything that helps? I realy need some relief!

side note: i have had sinusitis several times as well, it seems like i am always sick.

  • I thought I would paste this onto my message just in case it helps.Vicks Cough Remedy Sorry, no graphic for this one, and don't laugh, it works 100% of thetime, although the scientists at the Canada Research Council (whodiscovered it) aren't sure why. To stop nighttime coughing in a child (or adult as we found outpersonally), put Vicks Vaporub generously on the bottom of the feet atbedtime, and then cover feet with socks. Even persistent, heavy, deep coughing will stop in about 5 minutes and stay stopped for many, many hours of relief. It works 100% of the time and is more effective in children than evenvery strong prescription cough medicines. In addition it isextremely soothing and comforting and they will sleep soundly. The head of the Canada Research Council described these findingson the part of their scientists when they were investigating the effectiveness and usage of prescription cough medicines in children as compared to alternative therapies like accupressure. On A.M. Radio recently, a this guy talking about why cough medicines in kids often do more harm than good due to the chemical makeup of these strong drugs. It was a surprising finding and was discovered to be more effective than prescribed bedtime medicines for children. In addition it had a soothing and calming effect on sick children and they went on to sleep soundly. The guy on the radio said his child tried it on herself when she had avery deep constant and persistent cough a few weeks ago and it worked 100%! She said that it felt like a warm blanket had enveloped her. Her coughing stopped in a few minutes. This was a deep, uncontrollable cough that happened every few seconds, and it was incredibly annoying! After applying Vicks, she slept cough-free for hours. So, if you have grandchildren, pass it on. If you end up sick, try ityourself and you will be absolutely amazed by the effect.

  • I have had a chronic cough for 3 months now and it started when I got a 2 1/2 week flu. I haven't found relief for it and I find stress makes it worse. For me my symptoms include "tickly" feeling in the bottom of my throat and it makes me want to cough to get rid of it. Sometime the cough is hacking like smokers cough. And Its so bad sometimes my spouse says to me "Gawd, you'd think you were the smoker in the relationship" lol.I sit in class for 8 hours and I have these dumb small "ah heh" coughs.. it's neer ending. Im a nurse so my class mates told me to wear a mask.. oh boy!Haven't found a cure.
