Wait it out It's a bit like a hangover. Everyone has different "cures" they swear by.

Mine is hot orange juice and sleep.



Take as long as you need.

You wait 7 days with medication or a week without.

Seriously, you have to wait for your body to fight it. You can alleviate the symptoms - so, you can do stuff about the runny nose and the coughing and the sneezing, but the only way to "get rid" of a cold is to wait for your body to successfully fight and kill the virus.

Chicken soup helps people who are sick, scientists have done research and it's not just an old wives' tale.

So, look after yourself, keep some tissues handy, possibly lozenges if you have a sore throat too, eat/drink chicken soup (as well as oranges, or OJ, or anything high in vitamin C), and wait.

Also, raising your vitamin C intake generally helps prevent catching colds in the first place, and making sure you wash your hands regularly is a great way to prevent infection.

If only

I have a cold constantly for about 6-9 months every year .
AWFUL.

Just let it blow over. Or in my case, just get used to it.


Skittlify me up...
