  • Theraflu does help. Make sure he keeps up his liquids.

  • I'm sort of OCD so I would make my husband wear a mask when he has a cold so we don't catch it, and drink lots of OJ, get some Theraflu and lysol away!

  • Realistically it would take so much OJ for you to benefit from the consumption that it's unreal and I am talking about WAY over a gallon of OJ. It'd make more sense to just take a vitamin c supplement. =)

  • LOL girl I don't know about helping HIM other than going to the doctor but sick hubbies are BIG babies - so (and no, I don't drink) but vodka or valluim recommended for you - lol.

    Seriously, good luck, I hope he's feeling better soon - our kids (we have 6) passed it around and it was a difficult thing to get past!
