    Okay so i got a cold, possibly caught it off my bro who had it a few days ago.

    Anyway i dont really find that cold and flu tablets help me with a blocked nose etc.

    I always do the same thing at the beginning of a cold by saying yes everytime i have a blocked nose ill go and clear it but i get lazy and just end up sniffing making it worse! Sounds disgusting i know but i just dont even realise it most of the time till its too late.

    My question is, what do you people do when you have a cold to make it feel less worse than it is and help to sooth the blocked nose sore throat etc without taking medicines?

    Thanks for any help, tis much appreciated *sniff* haha.

    Warm fresh lemon juice and honey. Spoonfuls of honey help the throat. Inhale steam from a bowl of hot water with a bit of disolved salt in it. And just generally relax. And just keep blowing as much of it out as possible, it'll clear quicker that way.

    Yep, I always have homeade chicken soup ( the stock is homemade too) so nothing artificial or else it looses its magical power.

    I take Lockets/Halls/Soothers. And eat veggies and vitamin tablets (zinc for the ol' immune system). Although I have a weak immune system and seem to permanently have a cold which cannot be gotten rid of. I will have had this one for 3 weeks tomorrow :woo:

    My last cold was pathetic so im hoping this one will be just as easy to cope with seriously it was literally a sneeze on one day like one cough and a sniffle for 2 days at most. Barely knew i had it haha.

    Shall give it a try with the chicken soup and honey and lemon stuff!

    I dont find lockets/halls or soothers actually do anything for me so ill have to pass on that.
