Cold Remedy?

Does anyone have any cold remedies? I have the worst sore throat and cough. I'm not sure what I have because I can't keep my eyes open and my body just aches. I have hot and cold chills.... I can't afford the copay at the doctor right now so any home remedies would be appreciated. Thanks!!

  • The best one i know, is ginger tea. I boil a lil piece of ginger, in about a cup of water, for a good 5 minutes. Then you drain it, add sugar and milk, or however you like your tea. It will be bitter and strong, but my mother in law made it for me once, and it killed my cold in 2 days.
