sorry to burst your bubble, but i work with a pharmacist and he told me there isnt anithing around that'll quickly cure a cold. i wish i had asked him what would help, but i think you have more than a cold..an allergy may be in the mix.IFF its an allergy( try going to a local pharmacy and ask), he'd reccomend zyrtec. but make sure youre not taking any other meds with it.
my pharmacist is my best consultant,so do that before you take anything
Rest, relax, sleep and stay warm.
Drink warm fluids â€“ water & lemon juice, herbal teas.
Eat warming healthy foods â€“ vegetable broth.
Avoid mucous forming foods â€“ red meat, cheese, milk, grains.
If you have a chesty cough - rub Vicks Vapour Rub on your chest
Eat garlic â€“ raw if you can stand it, if not put plenty in your soup Add grated ginger to your water & lemon or soup, as it is exceptionally good for healing colds and flu.
I would avoid taking medication - its like putting a band-aid on cancer.
A healthy diet with plenty of antioxidants / super-foods - ginger, garlic, lemon, etc... is the only way to heal, and more importantly, strengthen your immune system.
During my last cold I did all of the above and was sick for less than 48 hours.
