What Do You Do For The Common Cold?

I feel a cold coming on. I immediately take some Airborne, vitamin c and I drink lots of liquids, especially herbal tea. I guess I believe that it will diminish the symptoms and hopefully cut the cold short and sometimes it does work. Do you have anything you do in particular when you feel a cold coming on and does it work for you?

Gosh, you better take care of yourself. :P I would drink lots of water to start with. Pop some vitamin pills if it is not too serious. Then drink some "flu tea" (chinese herbal medicine) if it gets a bit more serious. I will pop western pills if it gets real serious.

If it is just the first symptom then normally i takes a tablet of Coldrin. But if i'm already late then i try all that those all other ask me not to do. I drinks lots of cold water. i takes bath 2-3 times a day. If possible then i used to go to market to eat Ice-cream. And i used to all this because somebody told me that if you are already late then for cold there is no medicine. It'll take its time.
