  • Vaporizer while sleeping. Vicks vaporub on your chest. Sleeping with head elevated. I have asthma so if I get a cold and don't treat it, I end up with bronchitis and need meds to get rid of it. I tend to get cough syrup with codeine in it or I cannot breath or sleep so to coughing. Hot showers help break up the congestion too.

  • Put about a quarter to half teaspoon of powdered ginger in a cup of hot water. Add honey and lemon to taste. The ginger breaks up mucus and the lemon is vitamin C and the honey...well it taste good. Be sure to breathe in the vapors from the cup of tea.
    But if you don't get better soon see your doctor.
