I've got Vicks vapour rub on my feet, throat, back and chest.
I'm doing steam inhalation.
I've taken a Berocca.
I've eaten lots of kiwi fruit.
But I still feel awful; my nose is constantly running, my ears hurt, my throat is sore and I'm constantly coughing. It's been going on for too long. I'm normally really healthy (I think smile)

Anything else that I can do? Any old fashioned' garlic clove behind my ear' type of thing even. I'll try anything.

TIA

Lemon, ginger and honey....made into a hot drink. Always does the trick for me!

Hope you feel better soon OP.

thanks DangerMouse.
I don't know why I didn't think of that - it's what DS always asks for.
I'm going to make one now.

Use about 3 pillows in bed to keep you propped up. Throw a drop of whiskey into that drink if you have any. It might help you sleep.

DH has just told me that we're out of whiskey. Brandy?
