Donna, honey is a wonderful product - it can soothe a sore throat/cough and help with constipation. It’s something you can use with relative safety as long as there are no other symptoms like fever, difficulty in breathing, loss of appetite, lethargy, etc. let me know if you have more questions. Good luck.
