    i had a bad cold last spring (usually get 2 a year...once between spring and summer and the other in fall). i recomend that when you sleep you put an extra pillow at the top of your neck/base of your head to help you breathe better.

    if that doesn't work, hop yourself up on sudafed and tylonol cold and pass out.

    hope you feel better soon!

    I hope your feel better soon.

    Ok..remedies..The first sign of a cold..Scratchy throat etc.. I take Ecchinachia 3x a day.

    For stuffy nose..Those breath right strips..OMG awesome! They have them for colds now.

    If you have a hacking cough..Prop your self up with pillows..The lower you are the post nasel drip worsens the cough.

    Let me add Nyquil..Knocks u out!
    Hope this helps.

    Got sick when I first moved to LA two months ago with the nastiest-sounding cough ever (I called it 'emphysematic' and the sexy voice that Phoebe had on friends? Anyway, I highly recommend Mucinex if you're coughing up the stuff. Otherwise, if it's just cold stuff only, about 1000 mg of Vit C a day and tons and tons of water, and rest...hang in there!

    I haven't had a cold in a couple years. I have to give Purell the credit for it.

    I think the last time I had a cold was around my birthday back in August.

    We are all about the herbal remedies in our house so when I'm starting to come down with something, I take my echinacea, vitamin C, and drink plenty of water and get lots of rest.

    Hope you feel better soon!

    At the first sign of a cold coming on, zinc zinc zinc and mega doses of Vitamin C, along with tons of water. It'll shorten the length of your cold to half the time! Also, to promote sleep, Nyquil!

    I got a cold about 2 months ago, but was only down for a couple of days.

    I was feeling poorly this week and shots of Emergen-C and an Echinacea/Mahonia tincture did the trick, along with lots of rest and fluids. I also recommend Zicam if you can catch it at the very beginning. Otherwise, it's not that effective.

    hot baths with that green mineral salt stuff. 1 gram powdered vit C every hour in water. less if it gives you the runs.

    definately no work!!! rest day and night.

    Okay, if you have a stuffy nose try this. I have turned so many people on to it: Eucalyptus oil from a place that sells essential oils. Put a drop or two on a cotton swab and rub it around inside your nose a little. You will be able to breathe instantly. Eucalyptus is a great oil for a lot of ailments. You can put it directly on your skin. I also put it in my humidifier to prevent stuffiness day at night.

    And lots of peppermint tea.

    Zycam....I swear by it. Ii is essentially a zinc nasal spray. Good stuff.
