  • I know there is zicam over the counter. Have not tried it though. It is suppose to shorten your cold.

    I would just keep your immune system up. Get lots of fluids, water, 100% juice, eat fruit and veggies. Big one is get to bed on time tonight !!! A good nights sleep. Also get some soup and things to help ease congestion when it hits.

    Make sure to wash your hands well, cover your mouth/nose into your elbow when you sneeze/cough and throw away your tissues after using them so you can help keep it from spreading, especially if you have kids.

    Hope that helps !!!

  • Airborne works pretty well for me. I'd like to try Zicam but haven't yet- the nasal kind anyway. I've tried the pill form and it did nothing. Echinacea tea is very nice and it may help- you can get the tea bags in the grocery store. Vitamin C. Chicken broth or chicken noodle soup. Tea with lemon and honey.
