    Hi guys, ive got an important day tomorow and can't miss it.
    problem is im frikin ill.
    my nose won't stop running, my head feels congested, and im not sure if I should stay warm, or cool.
    I think I have a cold, so am I suposed to stay hot and sweat it, or stay room temperature.

    I dont have any ginger, honey, medicines. All I have is paracetamol, but thats just a painkiller. I only have earl grey tea LOL
    Any advice on how to make it go away...
    Also with my nose it just runs, and runs and runs, but it is colourless

    I know this sound stupid, but any advice would be great.

    except that lemsip contains paracetamol so you can only have it every 4 hours and not with anything else that contains paracetamol.

    take the paracetamol - it's a painkiller and it reduces temperature.

    from what you've said sounds like a viral infection so sleep, eat and make sure you drink plenty of water. Basically give your body the best chance to fight it.

    maybe drink some OJ have a vitamin tablet too.

    EDIT: is the snot, clear as well as colourless? or is it thick and creamy?
