Its so embarrassing getting a particularly vurilent strain in the middle of summer dammit!
I ply myself with lemsips, lozenges, sprays, drops, vitamin c pills, try to flush the damn thing out with water and even try and blow the damn thing out (hankies of course i mean!). Is the old addage true 7 days with treatment, a week without true, or is there a method that people find successful?
My cunning tip isn’t quite a cure but it gets rid of the symptoms.
Anti-histamines (non-drowsy preferably) clear up all the symptoms perfectly and leaves your body to fight off the cold without you feeling horrible all the time.
You can get them at any pharmacy – I use Loratadine but there is another type and usually one of the 2 works for everyone, best ask a pharmacist.
I haven’t suffered with a cold for over a year now. i use them for hayfever in the summer anyway but now take them in the winter whenever I feel a cold coming on.
