I am on vacation in Germany right now with ds (16 mo) and he just got what seems to be his first cold. He has a cough,runny nose, and sneezing :( dh went to the pharmacy and they gave him a syrup made with primrose oil and thyme. They are very holistic in their approach to medicine over here. Just wondering if any of you have used these back home in the states to treat colds? Did it work?

No I just use breast milk.

Thyme and oregano are great for fighting infections, so a concoction like that doesn't surprise me at all.
Let us know how it works!

He is actually much better today! I also got some salve with thyme in it to put on his feet from the pharmacy. There are homeopathic remedies everywhere over here as well as osteopaths, chiropractors etc.. Such a difference from back home!
