Itchy..itchy... scratch, scratch...

So much on my mind, so much I wanna post ...

Firstly, thank you for your kind words and comments .... *slight bow & a smile from me*

My mum is feeling better, can even go marketing this morning but she said her throat is still itchy and she ended up "spraying" some medicated oil IN her mouth, as far as she can put..... Oh Gosh! she got another EXCLAMATION from me when I heard that...

Is medicated oil (foong yau) edible??? Perhaps little bit ok la..huh? It SCRATCHES the throat for her, so I was told....

But drinking sips of hot water might be take away the itchiness of the throat, I told her.... anyway, as long as she is better, that is more than a relief....

  7. Hmmm.. it best to read the instructions on how to use the medicated oil...;)

    But I would recommend drinking hot tea instead.

  8. Yeah it works, but dangerous too. You want to stop coughing by easing the itch but you don't want to irritate the throat causing MORE cough. :D

    I had the misfortune of having that. ;)

    BTW, DO NOT listen to me! I'm not a licensed medical practitioner.

    Cheers!

  12. i have the same thing going on for quite some time. doctor said it's some kind of allergy. medicated oil works? i want to give it a try because the itchiness is too annoying, sometimes until i can't even sleep at night :(

    hope your mum is feeling better by now :)

  15. I will suggest Warm lemon or lime + honey drink. Or if not take the cough drops like fisherman, Hacks will help ease the itchiness of the throat.

    Hope she gets well soon.

  20. no-no...cant do that. i've read from somewhere that it actually burns the throat....and long use will tear the layers. like u said, drinking hot water soothes the itchiness. and try asking your mum to take lozenges..it works for me :) (i'll pray for her) cheers and god bless

  23. Wow, what a nice daughter you are! There are two things you can do for your mom: first, are there any chores that she can't do while she's ill? It would be a great load off her mind to know her responsible daughter is helping out.
