Doctors say people with coughs should take honey instead of visiting a doctor. Honey will usually work better than antibiotics. A cough usually gets better on its own in a few weeks. Many of us go to a doctor if we have a cough. Doctors say this can be a waste of time. Antibiotics do little to make a cough go away.

We use antibiotics too much so they are getting weaker against viruses. Medicines are working less. This is creating dangerous superbugs. Honey can help to soothe a sore throat. It is a traditional remedy for coughs. Honey may be good for children - they love honey but don't like medicine or doctors.
