That lovely black treacly chinese medicine for coughs/colds?

Postby Aliya » 22nd Mar, '12, 15:09

It is winter, we are sick and good ol NZ has nothing that really helps clear up congestion esp with the girls.

Can anyone remember the chinese medicine you get, I think it has a white label with lots of red and black on it, mainly red I think, it is very commonplace you can buy it in supermarkets as well as chemists. If possible we'd like to order it on-line to down here.

Thank you, us coughing... x

oh I liked the chinese syrup stuff, it was actually pretty effective. I'm back to Benadryl, it's not top choice next to the treacley chinese stuff, but it's the best second choice for me so far. Then you're back to Vicks. My sister got something really good for the kids, and all my pharmacy siblings new about it. They supplied to the mum unit and it was a bit miracle syrup decongestant and she was p'ssed hadn't had earlier - check with the pharmacist, not all the good stuff out in the common area.

You might have trouble getting it into the country if customs don't know the ingredients. Don't you have a NZ Chinatown you can get to, or can get it sent from?
