    They say high dose vitamin C is supposed to shorten the duration.
    Personally I find whining and moaning very therapeutic!!:D

    Combination of Vitamin C and Zinc
    Beechams Powders (not tablets - it's got to be the powders)
    Hot squash
    Plenty of water

    I've got a horrid cold, cough and Laryngitis - so I sympathies.

    You can't get rid of a cold it has to run it's course but you can relieve the symptoms.

    Double dose of Vitamin C is what my hubby does everytime and the cold dont last for as long then, vick inhalour for blocked noses, (your nose isnt blocked as such, it is the veins in your nostrils that as swollen that make you think you got a blocked nose). Keep warm and drink plenty of fluids. I love barley water as it is quenching. Night Nurse is brilliant too.
