  • Suedefed. Also taking a hot shower. Even just sitting in a closed bathroom with the hot shower running. The steam itself will clear up your congestion. Vicks Vapor rub on your chest will help too. ALWAYS blow your nose when you can. Getting the phlem out by blowing your nose is the best way to move the mucus and get rid of it.
