I need your best cold remedies, I’ve been stuck down with a bad cold (damn you bf!). My throat has got better recently but I still got sniffles/watery eyes/headache. I looked online and everything recommended honey, no thank you u_u
- Eucalyptus oil on your pillow overnight to help unclear any nasal blockages or put some in almost boiling water and then put your head over it and inhale the steam.
- Warm non-dairy milk (I find soya is the best as it’s generally thicker than other non-moo milks) with a little bit of ginger in (and sugar if you want to sweeten it).
- Water, lots of it! Add a squeeze of lemon for that added vitamin C and for flavour.
You could try spicy food to remove any mucus congestion, it’s got to be hot enough to normally make your nose run or eyes water at least or it won’t be any help and you’ll just burn instead xD
Make you you’re drinking lots of water and I drink a homemade lemon&ginger hot tea when I have any throat issues, does me a world of good.
If you have any vitamin C and D then take them in double amounts, the vits will support and strengthen your immune system and I always double vitamin C concentrations when I feel an illness coming on or any around it often to try and curb it before it takes full hold; works well normally! You could drink more orange juice and more carrots as well if you don’t have any vitamin tablets in, it’s just getting your immune system stronger so it’ll get the disease gone before you show symptoms.
