If a headache is caused by dehydration, this would probably work. But what unpleasant side effects are caused by OTC pain relievers?

Before you head to the drugstore for a high-priced inhaler filled with
mysterious chemicals, try chewing on a couple of curiously strong Altoids
peppermints. They'll clear up your stuffed nose.
Do people actually use inhalers for stuffed up noses? I thought they were for asthma, and I don't think Altoids would help someone having an asthma attack.

Sore throat? Just mix 1/4 cup of vinegar with 1/4 cup of honey and take
1 tablespoon six times a day. The vinegar kills the bacteria.
Wikipedia says that 90% of sore throats are caused by viruses, although consider the source.
