It's been done before and it'll be done again, but I was hoping to get a few more suggestions to add to the twenty or so I've tried over the last ten days to try to get rid of this darn tickly, dry cough.

Last night's newbie was rubbing Vicks on the soles of my feet then putting on my socks, it seems to have worked better than all the useless cough medicines I've been drinking by the gallon! fhmm

Pholcodeine. It's available over the counter, and actually works. You can only use it for a dry cough though, not one where you're coughing stuff up.

Thanks Gilraen, I'll buy that on the way home. I did ask the pharmacist for a recommendation the other day and ended up buying some beechams, but this time I'll ask specifically for that.
