Maybe whiskey is great for immediate effect, but in the short term, I think to ring NHS Direct for their professional advice. Wise in case a chest infection is lurking. Also consult your GP, Monday, if necessary.

Take some paracetamol use oblas oil good for clearing the nose. Is it affecting your breathing - if so make sure you are using your inhalers. My husband doesn't like steaming but some people can tolerate it. Buttercup syrup sometimes helps. If you start to feel worse call the doctors. Take good care x x
