Hi bees, I’m really hoping someone might have some great suggestions for this! I’m getting married on Tuesday (Sunday today) and the cold just keeps getting worse and worse! My nose won’t stop running, i keep sneezing loads (and am constantly feeling the urge) and because of that my eyes are going all blah too!! If I could just stop this, then I might be able to turn things around for the big day, but as it stands my nose and eyes are red and I’m drowning in tissues! I can’t put the things down!!
Has anyone else ever had this problem? What did you do? Any suggestions would be fantastic!!
Thank you so much Xxxxxxx

I swear by Cold-Eeze tablets, paired with green tea. Might be a placebo effect, but I swear it works!
Get well soon!!

Also rest! On top of everything, and how stressed you will be, your body can’t fight viruses if you’re stressing it out about everything else. I understand that will be almost impossible with a wedding coming up (congrats btw!) but try!!

super old remedy that never fails to get the “stuff” out:
boil a table spoon of salt and camille (for example 2-3 tea bags) in a big pot of water. Take it off the stove, on a safe table and hold your head over the pot. Cover your head with a towel so that the steam doesn’t miss you. Be carful with the hot water and don’t touch.
Breath through your nose as much as possible- stay for 10 minutes under the towel and breath the steam in. The salt and the camille opens everything and all your stuff will come out (make sure you have tissues around). Then go to bed and rest!
Uncomfortable 10 minutes but that sure works.
ps; nice side effect- cleans your skin naturally and makes it glow 🙂

Lots of good suggestions, also zinc! Make sure you take it with a meal. It might help lessen the duration of your cold, and if not well it’s good for you and your skin!
