my classic cure: 2 tablespoons virgin coco oil thrice a day for two to three days or until the cold goes away. i also used to drink lemon tea with ginger and cayenne pepper. cayenne boosts the immune system, and lemon is a source of vitamin c. ginger is an antiseptic among other properties. but virgin coconut oil is the mother lode. it is use in the management of AIDS. yes, the continent-killer of Africa, AIDS. it lowers the viral count dramatically. ;) hope that helps. :D

Hi :( I would drink some neo-citron or make your own with lemon juice and warm water with some honey in it.The honey will help you relax.Rest on the couch curled up in a blanket and watch t.v.Eat some good homemade chicken stew,this is a great cold killer,full of anti-oxidents and cold fighting agents in the chicken broth.Take some cold pills or either take a long warm/hot bath,mmm relaxing and helps to clear a stuffy nose. Peanut:)

hey take care, you can keep on sipping hot water, take steam add vicks in the hot water and cover ur self from cloth and breathe at a distance from the water.Take milk add turmeric powder to it and drink it.make a paste of turmeri powder and milk drops in it heat the mixture apply it on nose as well as forehead. these are quick relief tips for cough eat jaggery and onion taken at a time.eat strepsils.take care,sleep well.donot expose your nose in alot of air. make a black tea by adding elaichi,tulsi patta,etc

your avatar upside down... what is elaichi and tulsi and patta, jaggery, strepsils?... never heard of these things dear. you have stange food there i think. Everyone says take Vicks, i dont really know that stuff either, but heard of it... no tumeric in my tea!! that seems very odd indeed.Thanks for the advice sang2k2, i will just keep resting and drink tea and play on Mylot hehe... bye! - cliff
