Take a warm shower, keep fluids in you, take some cold medicine if you have any, and rest up. Im sick right now too. Ive had this dang cold for almost a month now, and it may have turned into Bronchitis. ick. /: I hope you have a great christmas, though<3 (:

Drink plenty of water, get plenty of rest, take medicine, take a warm shower, and eat healthy. Hopefully you will up in no time!

Drink lots of water, stay rested, and try to keep yourself as hygienic as possible to keep other people from getting sick. Drink warm drinks to help your sore throat, and of course a bowl of soup will probably improve your mood.

Feel better.

What also works really well is hot green tea with fresh ginger slices or hot ginger tea. If the fever isn't that high, I usually don't bother to take any medications for the fever. If you have an upset stomach, warm chicken noodle or vegetable soup (or whatever other kind of non-chunky soup you like) with a banana. If you can eat more, then do. When I had a fever of about 42C (107.6F) that's about all I could manage to get down, with medications.
