the bst way to gt rid of it is to drink plenty of water.. just drink at least twice the amount of your usual consumption of water everyday.. and enough rest and sleep will really help! just water and enough rest will cure that cold you are hating.. lol

How about giving them chicken soup or lemon aide or something they like to drink they do not always need to drink water when they are sick. Popsicles work also.

I do this particular remedy Fry pepper in a dry pan till smoke comes then add a cup of water and let it boil till it becomes 1/4th then drink it when it is warm.Drink twice or thrice a day. This is very good for cold even for fever too.

When I get a cold it usually starts off with a tickle in the throat so I know I am in for a cold so I go buy these little jube things that are menthol covered in sugar and suck on them all day and it seems to clear it up before it comes to anything.
