I all of a sudden developed a realy bad cough and feel like my throat is swollen and like there is something caught in my throat. A few hours later to cough is almost totaly gone but my thorat is sore. I think it is a cold becuase when I clear my throat or cough I can taste the muccas in the back of my thraot. The taste is not very nice is there any way to change the taste of it?


Yes, light lemon juice and water or cranberry juice and water break up the phlegm and its taste.
