I know that I have mentioned a time or 2 that my girl has food allergies.
I will blog about that in more detail later.
One of the things that I never really considered having to deal with in the area of food allergies, is medicine.
Specifically over the counter medicine.
Reality smacked me upside the head rather quickly the first time that she got a cold.
You see the girl is allergic to sugar and anything ending in -ose~~including artificial sweeteners. Not only that, but she is also allergic to cherries and oranges.
I was on a mission.
Make my girl comfortable during her cold.
I went to my local Stuffmart’s pharmacy isles and began my quest.
Did you know that every single cough syrup has some form of sugar, orange or cherry flavoring in it?
There goes any liquid form of medicinal comfort.
I was not to be deterred.
On to pills then.
Did you know that every single cold pill has some form of sugar in it.
I had one more option.
The local health food store.
Did you know that every single cough syrup in the health food store has some form of sugar, cherry or orange in it.
Good grief! Is there nothing out there that can help my girl besides Vick’s Vapor Rub?
After that, I began to be quite a bit a little anal about germs.
At every store, I wipe down the cart handles with an alcohol wipe.
I am insane about hand washing, and at church, I don’t touch door handles.
The sickies must not come into my home.
Somehow, a germ or 2 has passed through my defenses and now the girl has a cold.
So, I am here asking my wonderful readers if any of you have any sort of cold remedy that doesn’t involve sugar, cherries or oranges?
