  • Hot shower, another dose of benadryl (?) and gargle with salt water.

  • Try hot green tea. It will help your throat.

  • Gargle 3x a day with salt water, and use a q tip and wipe your nose with the salt water 2x a day. Take a multi vitamin, and drink at least one hot beverage, perferrably tea once during the day. I got this treatments when the swine flu was big, and we did this all that winter. We didn't get one cold virus that year. A few times we started with sore throat, and we kept it up, and added some orange juice, and within 2 days it was gone.

  • gargle with salt water, a hot steamy shower, hot tea with honey, run a vaporizer when you are sleeping to keep the room moist. Benadryl WILL make you sleepy. If you have had the symptoms more than a week, call your doctor and see if you have strep or something else.

  • When in doubt, I ask my pharmacist what he would recommends.
