I hate being sick…not that I think anyone actually enjoys it. So as I sit here on the couch right now…all rudolph nose and droopy eyes and all I began to wonder…what would happen if God forbid I got sick before the wedding? I don’t think my red, runny, and most likely skin chapped nose would garner me the ‘blushing bride’ look I hope for! So what is all of your go to cold remedies? Mine….sleep, aloe tissues and TheraFlu…oh and lots and lots of hot tea with lemon

Usually theraflu and then dayquil for the day, so I can get through the day, and of course.. chicken noodle soup! I also get in the bed as soon as I can, and vaseline is a must. I never buy the tissues I should with aloe and stuff so I use vaseline around my nose lol

I can tolerate any/every cold symptom except for a stuffy nose. If I’m congested I CANNOT sleep. So I always have nasal spray for emergencies.

I do echinacea/zinc and Vitamin C lozenges & wash my hands like crazy to try to prevent getting sick during the winter. If I get sick, it’s just sleep mixed with some hot tea and honey.

I always drink a glass of water with an Airborne in it.

I use Afrin when my nose is super congested, it opens you up within a few minutes and it lasts a long time.
Also, the “behind the counter” decongestant pills (Advil Cold & Sinus, etc) work way better than the versions that are NOT behind the counter, they actually contain more effective ingredients, so always get your cold pills from the pharmacist and not in the regular aisle.

Tons of sleep, hot tea with honey, and Tiger Balm to help my nose get un-stuffy. Hope you feel better soon!

Warm bourbon with a bit of honey.. thats just if I lose my voice though. Nothing better than a warm toddy before a concert!! For my nose I use sudafed though.

Hot water with lemon works wonders!

airborne, ZINC (seriously, it works), lots of sleep, wearing socks to bed (sounds weird, but it kicks the cold every time), vitamin C, lots of hot water with lemon (and a drop of honey if it’s too sour).

Sleep, sleep, hot tea, hot soup, vitamin c, sleep some more. I get about 1 cold per year on this plan 😉

No cold remedy works, but salt water gargles and neti pots do. It’s all about the saline!
Post # 15
Theraflu, zinc lozenges, Nyquil, lots of tea or hot water with honey. I tried to use the neti pots but there’s either something wrong with me or I’m doing it wrong because I always feel worse afterwards!

Raw garlic! Or Buckleys. Both relieve my congestion & make me feel less blah. Raw garlic is nasty, but it beats sore throat & stuffy nose hell! 🙂
