Question
I have a sore throat, and minor irritation of the nose, and airways, a little bit of cough and difficulty breathing. A Doctor friend of mine gave me a sample of Benzoin Compound Tincture U.S.P. From what I just read in your web-page I understand that I should mix it with hot water and try to inhale the steam. How many drops of Benzoin Compound Tincture should I use. and how much hot water?. Please let me know your answers at your earliest convenience. Thank you very much.
