Submit your remedy here...

Dear Cold:

Why won't you leave? You are making my nose run, I'm coughing and I sound like some kind of icky frog creature. I took Robitussin, Dayquil and coughdrops - still, you persist, and I hate you.

No love for you,
Serena

SO, do you all have any suggestions for how to get rid of this vile cold?

Also, apparently, wearing Kleenex in your nose is not a preferred method of runny nose control.

Garlic and Hot sauce. Put it in whatever you eat.

Drink fresh squeezed lemon in water, heated up with honey and cayenne pepper in it.

Airborne and Zicam. TONS of water; avoid milk and sugar (i.e., don't pound the fruit juice or put lots of honey in tea - plain tea is better). Having said that, I find that hot ginger lemonade is bliss, in moderation - if you don't have a Trader Joe's near you where you can buy a bottle and just heat it up in the microwave, an easy way to make it is this:

1/2 lemon, washed
Fresh ginger
Honey
Water

Put a couple of cups of water in a saucepan. Cut off and slice about an inch square chunk of peeled ginger and place it in the pan with the water. Squeeze the lemon into the water, then add it to the pan. Cover and simmer for about 10 minutes. Stir in honey to taste.
You can expand this and make larger quantities if you're pretty sick. It soothes a sore throat and an upset stomach.

Feel better!

I have used a whole box of Kleenex today. A. Whole. Box.

And I can't cough anymore because my throat hurts so bad.

I am going to try some of your suggestions when I go home...

P. S. Sugary coughdrops and syrups are wicked bad and nasty for a cold. Get sugarless drops.

Try not to cough unless you have something to get rid of. If you feel a tickle, drink some water. Coughing irritates your throat and makes you cough more.

Do you share an office with anyone? They would probably be glad if you left early!!

Get lots of sleep if you can. Take care and good luck!

Echinacea tablets. 3000mg or above. 10000mg would be ideal. They have antibiotic properties and act directly on the throat and sinuses.
