How do I keep my sore throat from turning into a cough?

Posted by BrokeStudent

My room mate has had a cough for the past week. It started out as a sore throat. After a three hour drive in the car with her, I was very worried that I'd catch it from her since she was coughing a lot. And sure enough, I did. I woke up this morning with a sore throat. I really do not want it to turn into a cough like hers. What do I do?

Have a cup of warm water every 30 minutes.

Lime Juice, Honey, Grated Ginger, Rosehips in hot water, all help too.
