  • i think sudafed is the only thing i was told i was allowed to take, but i'd wait for the call back first to be sure

  • Boil a pan of water on the stove, place a dishtowel over your head and carefully breathe in the steam , menthol rub along your neck and beside your ears, hot green tea or spicy soups. Heat up a can of chicken noodle and throw a few drops of hot sauce in it. Good luck. :-)
