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