What are the home remedies for sore throat and cough?

I had a minor sore throat a couple nights ago, and an annoying little cough has plagued me since. The problem is, I am a vocalist, and I need to be able to sing for the next three nights and my voice is starting to slip away. (laryngitis?) Is there anything I can do with home remedies to help?

Try steam inhalation 3-4 times a day.Try causticum 200 TDS in glbs.You need to rest your vocal chords so as to avoid the problem becoming chronic.Being a vocalist you need to have an ENT look at your vocal chords for polypus( acommon problem singers share with NETA's
