I hate colds !!!

Have had one brewing for a few days now, it's not streaming or anything but my nose is stuffed, my throat is starting to hurt and my lips are starting to get sore ... I am supposed to be going out on my first girlie night since November on Saturday and at this rate I wont be going

What can I try to fend it off ?

Echinaecia, water and lots of sleep. Plus Sudafed and Beconese nasal spray.

Lots of sleep PAH ! Have 3DD's at home and DH is driving home from Scotland, no chance grin
Will try everything else though

There is a homeopathic remedy called "aconite" which I find very successful at chasing away colds before they take a grip. Also there is a nasal spray you can buy from the chemist called "first defence" which I found good too.

A lemon- whole- squeezed until it's dead, into a cup of boiling water. Spoonful of honey into it.
Every 4 hrs.
