  • Peppermint is a natural decongestant - do you have any peppermint tea or gum or candy. Drink lots of hot liquids, even if it is just hot water. Mix cayenne pepper (anti-inflammatory) in the honey (antibacterial) for your throat. Have a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar every hour or two; drop some in your ears if they are uncomfortable.

  • Oh, gargle with warm saltwater (put in a drop of tea tree oil if you have it).
