post the best things you have ever found to help with cold symptoms
i am feeling so crap. i seem to get colds alot despite taking Zinc and Vit C. i also have a weakness of the windpipe so i end up barking like a seal and throat closes up (spasms) if i get a cough. its horrible.
i just wondered if i was missing something that everyone knew about except me....<clutches at straws>
Bed rest Heating on to the point of discomfort Lots of clothes on in bed, to the point of even moe discomfort Lots and lots of hot fluids and ideally a commode Ibuprofen and paracetamol - max dose allowed (but remembering lemsip has paracetamol) Absolute minimal activity
I realise this is a purely theoretical option for many, especially parents.
Hot toddy with soluble aspirin. Otravine for the blocked nose. Nitenurse - self explanatory! Lots and lots and lots of water (to replace all the snot you blow out) TMI!! But it's true. I feel your pain. I too, am a believer in garlic and Berocca.
