Burn pine needles and breath in the fumes. Like incense it will clear your sinuses like no other.

Also dandelion roots made into tea does make a good for the headaches that may accompany said cold.

As tacky as it sounds it turns out parents were right about vitamins.

Mainly, Vitamin C and Zinc are your very, very best friends in this case. Most normal cereals carry a bit of Zinc in it, and of course OJ is the best solution for Vitamin C. They'll kill a cold faster than John Wilkes Boothe after Abe Lincoln.

Local drug stores usually carry some sort of cold drop that'll say it's loaded with Zinc. Find them. Take them. Be happy. Zinc is like an A-Bomb on them cold viruses...alright I'm done with that.

It's why my colds usually last only 1-2 days.

Besides the obvious cures, like, getting plenty of rest, eating some chicken broth, and staying off drugs like caffiene and nicotine, then you could try some herbs like garlic (echinacea helps if you get strep throat), or maybe drink some herbal tea (put some lemon juice, honey, or ginger in it, they help the immune system).
Thats what I do. Now, I go to play WoW.

Last time I got sick at my grandma's, she made me chug baking soda water. Then I had to snort it.



It burns like hell, but it does help. With the symptoms at least.

Too much care bearism around... if I wanted a decent forum, I'd go to 98% of the forums out there.

I want to say it for the record; never, ever, ever take medication for a cold. I had one of those dry-cough ones last week, it got so bad I could hardly talk. So, I go to my GP and she gives me this stuff to take(totally free of course).

A few days went by and I was still choaking on my lungs. Now beinging an idiot, It was only now that I went and read the ingredients list. Want to know what apparently kills a cold?

Glucose
Sucrose
'Liquid Sugar'
Glycerol

Notice the pattern? They're all sugar. Sugar. Fucking sugar. Not even special medical sugar, just sugar sugar. In the medical world, this is called a placebo. Placebos cure Hypochondria, they do not destroy viruses.

Anyway I stopped taking it and was fine two days later (today in fact).

Like so many wanabe artists, I have a link in my sig to DA
And one to my crappy webcomic too.

People are stupid when buying painkillers. I never, ever buy named brand medication if I have to, always go for that...cheaper, crap. Because they have the exact same ingredients. They're just 10 bucks cheaper.

Anyway...good thing you're not a diabetic vden.

...Er, are you?

i'm amased, you guys managed to stay roughly on-topic for an entire page!



well, dispite disliking tea for it's bitterness, the female flatmate has been brewing me up mugs of the stuff (with three spoonfulls of sugar).

i've stopped drinking milk and eating dairy products, coz that's supposed to help you to stop getting more muscus in your body. am i right there..?

i've only really been taking ibuprofen so far, because yeah, i know that few medications will really help with the common cold. i've heard some doctors will give antibiotics to people with colds, dispite it being proven not to help. no wonder we're getting more abtibiotic-resistant viruses around!

there's a big lack of pine trees where i live, but the vitamins are easily gotten.
urgh, i hope i sleep better tonight. last night i didn't drop off until 6am. x.x;

*cookies and hugs to all for the help. has a funeral to go to tomorrow, hopefully will be a bit better by then, doesn't want to be coughing through the entire service.*
