  • Zicam. In my experience it really does lessen the time spent sick and the severity.

  • If I can catch it at the very first tickle, I take Echinacea and Airborne. If not, then Zicam. Sometimes if I have been in what I call an exposed situation--shopping, doctor's office, visiting at a hospital, church--where I am shaking hands with people or touching doorknobs, I take the Echinacea and Airborne as a preventative.

  • Someone was telling me that Zicam was taken off the market. I hope not! That's what I usually take. That and a nap. Extra sleep helps me a lot when I'm sick. Hopefully it won't turn into a full blown cold for you. I hope you feel better soon!

  • I drink Ginger Tea. Just mix ginger in hot water and slip slowly. Works!!

  • I'm not a drinker, but theres a liquore called Chartruse, 110 proof I believe. I keep it on hand and the first sign of a cold I drink about 1/2 short glass of it. Actually I hold my nose and drink fast, lol Tastes nasty, but I wake up the next day and ALL symptons are gone! I swear by it! I think all that alcohol kills any and all germs you may have, lol
