I have this stupid bad cold that has been going on since Christmas eve - I feel like crap - my nose and ears are blocked, I have a sore throat, cough and sinus headache and I basically need a day in bed doing nothing to really get over it but thats not going to happen as dh has been working all week and will do until Monday and I have a 4 yr old and 2 yr old who need supervising constantly.
What can I take the minute he gets home that will knock me out til morning so at least I get some proper rest - all the stuff I've been taking is 'non-drowsey'?
think it's over-the-counter only. marvellous stuff. while you're in the chemists, get some inhalation fluid (eucalyptus / menthol) and the moment he gets in steam your head with it for ten mins while the NN is kicking in, then get under the duvet.
