Well it all started with my husband having a cold then my daughter gets sick.She had strep throat and still has a runny nose and cough.My husband is still really sick...and i have caught it.

Its hard to get out of bed cause i feel so dizzy,i have had a fever of 102.5,my chest hurts and been coughing.Whenever i cough it kills my chest.I really feel like im going to die.Plus one min im hot the next freezing;(


I have been taking tylenol cold medicine but i dont think its working.Do you ladies know anything else thats good to get rid of colds?My poor daughter is still sick everyone in this house is sick.I just wanna get better so i can take care of my daughter.Its sooo hard just  to get out of bed.

Hot tea/water with lemon and honey helps with my cough and chest hurting.

I have heard that the liquid Zicam is suppost to work really good. I brought some and tried it but couldnt drink it. I can NOT take liquid medicines except the lemon theraflu. GL and hope you feel better. How long have you all been sick? Maybe its time to get to the dr and see if you need antibiotics?

Dont worry, I really dont think she will get any worse from you. She had it before you did. Really I wouldnt worry too much. I know its hard. I have heard the liquid Zicam works wonders, you put it in whatever you want to drink and its tasteless. I just couldnt do it. (Mind over matter) Hope you feel better. I have been feeling crappy for about 4 days with sinus/cold symptoms, and my dr called me in some meds cuz over the counter just wasnt kicking it at all. I live in FL so the weather dont help me!!
