Hello there, As most people do, I hate having colds. It just makes things worse everyday especially working days. I easily catch colds. If someone near me coughs or sneezes, I get bothered and annoyed because I know I will be infected by the virus. When I do get colds, I often have teary eyes that affects my eyesight. And it really really pisses me off. It would usually last for one week. Do you have any suggestions on how to get rid of it the fastest way? What I have is just drink lots of water since I hate taking medications.

Hello jhonnaroxas! i would suggest that aside from drinking lots of water, drink fresh juices as well, take vitamin C (ascorbic acid) as well. Anyway, its just a supplement that could help boost your immune system so your body will be more protected from catching colds, cough etc. Stay away from people who are sick and often put handkerchief or face towel on your mouth and nose so you could at least covered them from airborne germs that is spreading when you're outside. Eat lots of citrus fruits like orange and have enough sleep at night time. Good luck!

Hi jhonnaroxas, I'm taking vitamin C, but I don't know if it is effective. My pharmacist told me than a cold medically treated needs a week to be cured, and a cold not treated needs seven days .
