The Pepperup Potion is a brew which is used to cure witches and wizards of the symptoms of a common cold. Although the potion works quite well, one of its well known side effects includes steam shooting out the drinker's ears for several hours.
 Known Uses
- In 1992, the students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry were overwhelmed by the common cold, prompting Madam Pomfrey, the school nurse, to use the potion on the sick students. Ginny Weasley was forced to ask for some by her older brother Percy, though her misery may have been more due to her situation with the Chamber of Secrets that year rather than her being ill.
