Dry throat
Hello
Please recommend something for a dry throat.
I don''t want to suck too many sweets because of the sugar content, and too many sugar-free sweets can result in diarrhoea.
I am on various medications for blood pressure and am also on warfarin.

Hi

Steam inhalation using a humidifier would be good option although not viable if you're at work.

I've found cough mixtures such as Solphyllex too be quite soothing. Otherwise, take some honey dissolved in warm water.
