This cold just won't shift - 8 days and counting and I am miserable as sin! Have been sparingly taking Sudafed at night otherwise I wouldn't sleep at all, likewise a bit of paracetamol for the pounding headache, Olbas oil, but what else can I safely take?
ginger tea is good - pour boiling water over freshly grated ginger and let it steep add some lemon and sugar/honey to taste. Can really cut through chest stuff. I also find a thai curry can help massively.
