I drink ginger ale and eat soup. Just lay in bed and relax with lots of blankets. Meds always make me feel worst for some reason.

Cali Willette said...

When I have a cold I drink lot's of tea and take a lot of vitamin C. Thanks for the giveaway. <3

Jeff Taylor said...

I will stay on Nyquil every night that I am able. It really helps you get the needed sleep that allows your body to heal itself. Of course, the alcohol content probably helps as well. Thankfully, I've not had a bad cold for a couple of years.

Agnes DC said...

Every time I have colds or even any one in the family has it, I let them rest the whole day and make sure that they are well hydrated. I usually rub vapor rub on their chest and cook them their favorite soup.

Carol M said...

I mostly keep going as always and drink lots of orange juice.

stacey dempsey said...

I have lots of trouble with allergies. Usually for that use salt sprays for my sinuses, which works well for a cold too. Salt gargles really help with sore throats as well. I also like to make ginger tea straight from the root,it seems to help get past the cold faster and is great for an upset stomache too

Kelly Tupick said...

I usually try to take something right away for it. Dayquil and Nightquil seem to work best for me. I hate having colds so i try t stay right on top of it. Doesn't always work though.

It depends, if I can keep going, I do, and try to get to bed early and have lots of juice with vitamin c. If worse, I just lay low and drink juice and have foods like eggs with toast.

Lee said...

When my daughter starts getting a cold, I immediately buy one of the big bottles of V8 Fusion. She drinks it all within a couple of days, and the cold usually goes away by then. It's the quickest cure we've found. She likes the acai mixed berry or strawberry banana...

katieoscarlet said...

When I have a cold like the bad chest cold I had a couple of weeks ago, I try to drink a lot of water. I also try to rest as much as possible. It is horrible when it feels like somone is sitting onyour chest. I also don't use a lot of cold medicine because it sits on my stomach and makes me nausous.

Dorothy Teel said...

Allergies are the pits, I hate when it changes seasons and then my nose starts running and I get headaches and just feel miserable, I hate to stay in the house, but I can tell when it is going to be windy or rainy because my nose begins to run, I like to drink water, take an occasional Caritin or Zyrtec or the like and take it easy we also love to push vitamins and zinc when feeling ucky.
