    Default Sore throat and nursing

    What (medications) can I take while having terrible sore throat while bfing? And to make it even more worse, my baby (10 weeks) is having nasal congestion too.

    I normally take loads of honey + hot water. I already have my humidifier on.

    Salt water gargle never works for me and makes my condition even worse.

    I never get any relief with sore throat lozenges.

    Thanks
