Hi,
I have a really bad cold, I was wondering if anyone knew any good home remedies which could help my cold quickly and effectively.
I am taking lemsip max cold and flu tablets at the moment, doesn't seem to be doing anything.

There's not really a lot you can do with colds beyond treating the symptoms. A lot of people will recommend vitamin C or zinc but there's really little evidence they help all that much. Any cold/flu medicines will usually be largely paracetamol, so they might help a little but they certainly won't shorten your cold/send you on the way to recovery.

The only thing you can do is take care of yourself-lots of rest, stay hydrated, paracetamol for aches and pains, hot drinks for sore throat, stock up on tissues.

It may sound random, but I assure you that this remedy has been long used all over many countries and it works brilliantly!

Boil some ginger, and when the liquid cools down, mix in some lemon and honey. Don't put the honey in while the mixture is hot because it will lose its effect! This thing has been getting me better since I was a kid!
