Overview: Upper respiratory tract infections (URTI) are one of the most common conditions seen in primary care. Effective treatments for this acute, bothersome illness are limited; inappropriate antibiotic prescribing and use of therapeutics with little evidence of effectiveness are common. Join our discussion as we discuss a recent meta-analysis from the BMJ which suggests that honey, in any form, is superior to usual, common treatment for URTIs.
