Boy, is it turning out to be a bad cold season. In our house alone, we have dealt with pneumonia, which landed myself in the hospital in early November for a week. Once I left the hospital, I found my daughter Savannah had pneumonia, while Bella was suffering from croup. Ugh. And, before these health setbacks, we had dealt with sinus infections and head colds. So, for the better part of October and November we were grounded at home, trying to rest and get better. And, as we were home, we saw family and friends also dealing with similar illness. My mom had pneumonia, and just yesterday my daughters' best friend was diagnosed with early stage pneumonia. I am so hoping that December is a time for rest and healing for people and that the new year will start off on a better foot for all.
Just the other day my husband came home complaining of a scratchy throat. I thought to myself, "Oh, no, not again." We were finally starting to get better and now my husband was bringing something home. If you were to visit us right now, you would think we had our own little pharmacy going with all the prescribed and over the counter meds. When a cold kicks in our house, it triggers asthma in myself and my two girls, so we have to use a nebulizer on top of medicine prescribed. I have found that when I used the nebulizer and am in the house where it is dry from the heat being on, my throat, too, gets scratchy. When this happens, I usually reach for a bag of Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops and suck on a couple of the drops. Usually this is all I need to sooth a dry and irritated throat.
And, when my husband complained of a sore throat, I quickly reached for a bag of Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops and told him to suck on a couple, and see if that helped.
He had never tried Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops before, just knew that I used them for a sore scratchy throat. He was quick to comment on how good they tasted compared to other sore throat drops on the market. My husband, like so many other guys, is not a fan of doctors or medicine, so when he gets the dreaded "man cold" we have to sit back and let him suffer and complain until he gets better.
For the past few days my husband has been using Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops to help soothe his irritated throat. He says after he sucks on a couple of the drops, he get relief almost instantly. He can't get over how this drop really coats his throat. This was not something he experienced with other sore throat drops. I told him this was one of the many reason why I swear by Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops, because they are ranked #1 in throat coating action.
I also love how the wild cherry flavor I have been using for years is now sugar-free. He, on the other hand, is a fan of the Vitamin C Orange drops as they contain Vitamin C (25% RDA per drop).
With the holidays fast approaching and cold and flu season in full swing, I have made a point to stock up on Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops and even have extra to give as part of gifts to family and friends, so that they can get relief when a sore, irritated throat hits.
