Get a small glass, fill it with boiling water.

Add a spoon of honey

And 2 dashes of lemon juice

Drink while hot.

It works.

Oh man. Me too. It's awful. It turned from hayfever to cold overnight.

There is no cure. But I always use Night Nurse! It is amazing, I suggest you take it before you go to bed.

Stay in bed and have your family wait on you, hand and foot. Milk it for all it's worth!

Haha! Yeah, I think steaming hot baths are good too. And an early night.

I have a cold too, as does my husband, as do the kids.
Actually the kids got it first - then kindly passed it on.

Same. I'm not even sure which I've got, as I've taken my hayfever medicine and I still feel just as bad, and even if I don't go outside I still have the same symptons. I think I have a combination of both hayfever and the cold

Honey and Lemon works a treat for me too!

I also swear by Buttcup Syrup for sore throats, as it seems to get rid of the worst of it.

Lots of sleep and drinking loads of water seems to flush the worst away...

It's so annoying, isn't it? I have itchy eyes and sneezing fits, but I also have headaches and symptons of colds.

It's such a bummer.
