Giveaway & Review: HALLS Cough Drops For Allergy Symptom Relief [CLOSED]

Although there is nothing funny about suffering from allergies, I always joke that I should own stock in HALLS because I rely on them so much for allergy relief all year round. A little over a year ago, I began to experience asthma-like symptoms. I would have a chronic cough, which caused me to wheeze and have shortness of breath, several weeks at a time. I truly thought I had caught pneumonia, but the doctor said it was just allergies. Luckily I do not have asthma, but unluckily I do experience some of its symptoms.

There are only a handful of things that help open my airway and relieve my violent coughing almost immediately. One thing is Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia Ice Cream. I've tried other brands of ice cream and they did not work. Another thing is an inhaler prescribed by my doctor. I stopped using it because it only stopped my cough for a period of two seconds. After that brief moment of relief, I would start hacking and wheezing again. HALLS is something I've learned to keep on hand because it actually is an oral anesthetic. It helps my throat to stop feeling so closed up and allows me to catch my breath. The menthol really helps with that as well. I keep it in my desk drawer and in my purse at all times.


The most effective variety of HALLS for me is the Honey-Lemon. Unfortunately, I cannot find it in the large bags, so we always pick up the bag of Cherry HALLS, which contains 80 drops.
