"I ALWAYS DID HOT WATER WITH HONEY, LEMON AND SALT, THEN GARGLE WITH IT, AND SPIT. (YUCK...TMI...) HOPE YOUR BETTER SOON!!!"
"If you want relief from severe symptoms, aspirin, paracetamol and ibuprofen are very effective for relieving headache, sinus pain, sore throat and aches and pains. A nasal spray containing xylometazoline or oxyetazoline to clear a blocked nose can be very helpful before sleep. Any hot drink will relieve a cough and sore throat – but standard cough medicines are no better than placebo. Spicy foods and hot soups are also beneficial."
I personally swear by herbal tea with honey. I drink a lot of it to ease my aching throat. I even cool it down a little and give it to my girls when they're not feeling well.
Do you have any tips that help you get through the sneezy, coughing, aching, stuffy head stages?
