You could also check to see what pharmacies have over hte counter cold medicine. If you don't have a pharmacy maybe a Wal-Mart or something of that sort has some.

A friend from India helped me with this last year. Put a teaspoon of tumeric in a cup of warm milk and drink before bed. I was skeptical but it worked. feel better.

Drinking orange juice would help. That is a source of vitamin C. If you have vitamin C tablets at home handy, you should take that too. I drink orange jiuce every morning as part of my breakfast regularly. That helps keeping the cold away. I also keep Vapex and Vicks inhalents handy for getting rid of sneezing. Do you have them ?

Get lots of sleep, also drink lots of liquids, some orange juice would be good. take hot baths, then rub some lotion with eucalyptus in it on your chest. Take Nyquil at night so you get a good nights sleep, it really does help. The best things to do are to rest and get plenty of fluids. Do what ever you can to get some extra sleep.

Well as they said drink lots of fluids. Eat food rich in vitamin C, like oranges, green vegetables if you have guava in your place you can eat that too. Try to have lots of rest. And as the Chinese say if you have cold got to or eat warm or hot food, well soups for that matter. I hope I was able to help. Get well soon.

Woah, sorry to hear that you have a severe cold. Hmm...you can try making lime tea with some ginger and get a 3 to 4 hours sleep. I think you'll get better and that was my experience. If you don't like ginger, just put lime in it, make the drink warm, pour some hot water into it and more normal temperature water. Get well soon!

Yes Ajith, rain in December is responsible for the chilly cold weather and thereby getting cold! I'm also with cold for the last two days! I take raw tea with lemon and black pepper powder in it to get relief. Also, dal of horse-grams has good effect. Green orange cut and sqeezed over hot and white rice and eaten quickly is also another homemade treatment method. You mnay take up to three peels of garlic during meal to fight cold. One Homoeopathic medicine for cold is "Beladona-200" and this is to be taken four times a day and it effects in around 12 to 18 hours. You may use any or all methods above. Thanks and hope your quick healing!!

Steam inhalation is a good idea. Mix in some vicks or a similar product with mint. Drink juices and eat fruits rich in vitamin C such as lemons and other citrus. And get PLENTY of sleep!

Try boiling water or hot water in a mug then put some vicks on it. then enclose the mug with your hands so that the vicks won't go away. Then smell on it. You can also drink and drink more glasses of water or any citrus juice. Those are home remedies, but never forget to take your medicine for colds.
