So yesterday I had a slight cough and acute sore throat. I then drank a cud of red rose tea with a lot of honey ( not sure of how much I was to put in therefor I used more ) that didn't really help so I had a 1/2 a glass of lemon juice which did indeed help. This morning i woke up with a stuffy nose, horrible cough, very sore throat, and a horse like voice. If any one could let me know what they think it is that would be great. Thank you.

It is really not possible to accurately diagnose anyone over the Internet. There are sooooo many diseases and conditions that cause the same or similar symptoms, that it would be impossible for me, or any healthcare provider, to determine exactly what YOU have. Certainly, viral infections (colds) can cause cough, sore throats, and hoarse voice.
