I haven't had a cold for 10 years so I haven't had to deal with them..Of course,,dealing with this stress has probably depressed my immune system to a degree. I have been sniffling and sneezing since yesterday. What is your favorite cold remedy? I don't have a sore throat fortunately, it seems to be basically sneezing and sniffling problem at this point. Ahh Choo!

My husband discovered Vicks Nyquil for night and Vicks Dayquil for daytime. So, we take one dose at bedtime and get a good night's sleep. Then the other one for daytime, to ward off all those awful symptoms. We do this for about a week, until our cold is completely gone. It does work!

I should have gotten Nyquil yesterday instead of Melatonin. I bet that would have knocked me out!

@snowy22315 It works beautifully, to ease all those miserable symptoms, for as long as you need it.

If you haven't had a cold in ten years, maybe it will pass quickly. i haven't had one going on thirteen years now.

Yeah, it doesn't seem too bad. It's not getting any worse.

So sorry! I never get just a cold. It always turns into something where I need an antibiotic. The behind the counter Sudafed works for everyone else I know. Feel better soon!

It takes about 6 days to get rid of a cold. Stay hydrated, sip warm drinks, keep the air humid. Warm milk with a bit of honey helps.

Milk isn't good if you have phlegm, but I don't have really have any at this point..the cold seems to be under control. No sneezing today..and the sniffles are gone too.

@snowy22315 Was it a cold or it was due to pollen? This is a pollen season.

Anything citrus, orange juice or straight up oranges are the best. And some warm tea.

@snowy22315 Makes sense haha I just normally go after anything citrus when I am sick. Works right away since I don't like medications.

I don't really have any remedies. I take cold and flu tablets usually as my nose runs like a tap when I get a cold.

I usually take some over the counter standard cold medicine and let it run its course. Having a cold is horrible

Yes, but some are worse than others..This one isn't making me too miserable. I just don't feel 100 percent. The worst thing is that lingering cough. I hope I don't get that. I don;t think I will this time..wrong time of the year for it.
