More Answers to “Common cold?? helllp?“A steamy room sounds like a great idea…THere are “alternative” medicines you can get a the local health food store. I always use Green Dragon. Doesnt eliminate the cold.but you get over it a lot faster. I hear vicks has a tablet you put in the shower and the hot water and steam disolve the tablet and produce vapors to help you breathe easier.
WELL U CAN TRY ZICAM THAT HELPS ME WITH THE SEVERITY AND DURATION OF THE COLD. THERE IS ALSO AN HERBAL PILL CALLED ECHINACEA THAT YOU TAKE WHEN YOU GET YOUR FIRST SYMPTOM OF A COLD AND IT IS ANOTHER THAT REDUCES THE DURATION AND IT HELPS BUILD UP YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM.
try running a bowl of warm water and adding mint or lavender to it.put your head over the bowl and place a towel over your head and stay like that for ten minutes.alternately you could go and see the doctor or just rest,stay indoors if you can help it. ♥b♥
Common cold is a viral infection of the nose and throat. There are hundreds of different types of viruses which can cause common cold.These viruses are transmitted from an affected person to another directly or indirectly. Detail informationsavailable at http://ailments.in/commoncold.html.
I know it sounds funny or old fashion but chicken soup (has to be home made), echiniaca(10 days on 10 days off to build your immune system), zinc (zicam is a good source of this), vitamins, lots of water, as for the cough use a cough suppressant, there may be one in your health food store that is natural but may not have the strength of a commercial one which is important so that you may have some rest. As always be sure to research these products for some of us have allergies to different herbs and supplements. so its important to speak to a health practitioner for safety. Rest is the most important of all. When a person gets sick in my opinion its about not rest in the first place, God does for you what you won’t do for your self. REST REST REST! Oh yeah using saline water sprays up your nose is great for cleansing this portion of the body. Bacteria is harder to kill and viruses run their course so be sure to talk to someone that is qualified to answer these questions. I am not a health practitioner i am a mom and this is what i did for my sons. NO dairy product for the mucous problem. that will subside with no dairy products.
