Cayenne Pepper Cough Suppressant

I still have a bit of a lingering cough from a cold. Not too bad, but a little inconvenient when you’re trying to keep a baby from waking up in the next room. I also recently had Thai food delivered the other day (this becomes relevant in a bit) and there were some leftover dried cayenne peppers that had been marinating in Thai curry.

I remember hearing that cayenne pepper powder was good for a cold so I tried sucking on one of the peppers. It was really spicy but sure enough, my cough went away for a while. I doubt it’d work for something like bronchitis, but it’s pretty effective for a mild cold.
