Are you sure it is a cold and not an allergy? The way that I can tell is that allergies make me feel way more miserable than colds do.

I hope that you feel better real soon, I had a small one about a week ago and I also hate having one in the summer time. Have you tried some Vicks Vapor Rub, that will help open your sinuses. get well soon. Hugs!

Summer colds ARE really awful! Try placing a cold rag over your whole face for about 10 min. The cold with moisture may help you. Or as dry as it's been, try a cool mist humidifier.

Believe it or not, I personally find coffee good for this, also. I think that it seems to cut the drainaige in the throat. Summer colds are the worst.

Hello.shaun72,the best method to cure a cold is to sleep more and drink more water,if you have sore throat as well,you can make a hot salt mixture and use it to gargle your mouth few times a day,you will recover few days later hopefully. Take care.

I usually get colds easily if I don't exercise much or don't take ascorbic acid. I also hate having colds. It just makes me turn red and so weak that I just want to sleep all the time.
