First of all, avoid publicity and stay at home. You can handle the symptoms of a cold naturally- drink hot tea, hot chocolate.
Also, if you are feverish, you need to start taking non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs. If you have fever for three consecutive days, visit your doctor because you might need to start antibiotics. Check this out for more info : http://hubpages.com/hub/The-best-way-to-avert-cold
If I am really congested I use the "Netty Pot, it cleans me out so then I don't get the inevitable sinus infection that follows if everything festers in there too long. I am very prone to sinus infections, so I sort of freak out when I get a cold. It takes a few times to do the Netty Pot right at first, but for me it has been a big help. Some people just hate it. Its a matter of opinion I guess.
IU saty home in my most comfortably clothes, I get head colds badly everything from my nose to my eyes leak, leak is what I have dubbed what happens to my face. I drink plenty of tea and just relax, not much you can do aboutr a cold, just ride it out!
Go to the store and buy a fresh pineapple. It is great for a sore throat and it will make you feel good quickly...eat the whole thing! WB
funny you asked...my girlfriend just came down with a cold last night. Typically, I like to just alternate every 4 hours between Tylenol and the Gel Capsule Advil. Drink plenty of water and gatorade. Plus, chicken soup makes me feel like new...for a little while anyway.
Fluids,fluids a lot.
Drink tea and vitamins.
At least 1000mg of vit.C daily.
I crawl in bed and whine like a baby. It usually gets me about 3 days worth of her attention, then she moves on to important things like the dishes or her nails.
Chicken noddle soup is great for a sore throat or to clear out your sinuses. A nighttime cough medicine will help you sleep. Take plenty of vitamin C or orange juice.
Fluids,water,gatorade,tea and water lotsa water,flush it out!
Plenty of rest,take a fever reducer or pain reliever if needed.
If you can't sleep comfortably Nyquil can definitely do the trick.
Of course vitamin C and your regular multivitamin.
