... and I caught one myself >_< I haven't had one of these since grade school, but this year I broke my cold-free streak... So, what do you folks do to get rid of the common cold? I stay clear of pills and just drink tea all day... it seems to be working so far.  Very Happy

I'm a big believer in vitamin C and keeping warm. I usually try to "sweat" it out and just drink grapefruit juice all the time ad eat lots of soup Smile

They say; it's better to catcht one cold per year...or the next will be much stronger Shocked

Tea with honey (not sugar) and a few drops of lemon... Wink , and good Anime (Anime that makes you cry Crying or Very sad , very important), if doesn´t work try this:

1- Hot chicken soap with much good Anime (that makes you cry Crying or Very sad ) Very Happy , or ,

2- A shot (or two Very Happy ) of a hot drink (Bagasse, Aqua vitae Twisted Evil ) and good Anime (that makes you cry Crying or Very sad )

I normally try and ride it out.
I've had a bit of one all through this winter. Just a blocked nose and a cough.

Ah well. Hope you people all get well soon  Smile

I'm just getting over a cold, the other day I pulled a muscle somewhere around the back to the base of my neck after I sneezed.  I just drank more green tea than I usually do.  Occasionally I took some tylenol cold or tylenol fever or whatever its called.  I don't mind the common cold, especially while growing up, I'd go to the hospital each year and they'd say I have bronchitis and end up giving me anywhere from 2-5 medications.

Ouch, I didn't know you could pull a muscle by sneezing... I try to avoid sneezing when my throat is sore, otherwise I'll be stuck 5 min going "Holy Mother, that burns!"

Ah man, few things hurt more than sneezing when your throat is raw.

I caught a cold a little while ago, but it wasn't bad. I don't think I've ever had a disease that was more than a minor inconvenience.
