Usually use vicks and a netti pot.

Yes, I forgot about the neti pot. I use mine everyday and it really does help. It will help with any incoming sinus infection.

You can also try sleeping with a cool mist air humidifier. It helps me when I have a cold.

I smashed the garlic and boiled it. Put a little of sugar and drink it. Makes your body warm and feel good.

My husband swears by echinachea tablets and garlic tablets for a cold. He starts taking them when he feels a cold coming on, and he says it shortens the duration and severity of the cold. Good luck to you! :star:

I too have a cold that keeps staying with me    my thoughts are if you take medications the cold will last for 7 days and if you take nothing it will last a week

I used to take a shot (or 2 every couple hours)  of Ginger Brandy when I had bronchitis and/or severe cold/flu.  It would knock it right out of me.

I'm a firm believer in coldeeze.  Or Zicam - anyway you can get a little extra zinc in ya at the very beginning.  Sleep more, drink more water - and lay low.  You're body needs some down time and it's warning you.  If I get a chill I get sick.  Everytime.  So for me layer it up to avoid that chill.

I've tried the zinc therapies such as Cold Eeze and have had no noticeable effect.  I find I'm most susceptible to sickness when I'm run down without enough sleep or stressed out.  I think rest and possibly higher intake of Vitamin C is helpful in thwarting the cold.
