Default Anyone know anything to do with getting rid of a cold?

I have had a low fever on and off for a couple days now (between 100 and 101), along with a tickly throat, and sneezing, nasal congestion, etc. Does anyone know any tricks to getting rid of this fast? My husband comes home from his week in the Phillippines tomorrow and I would hate to be stuck in bed all day when he gets home! Thanks!!

Theraflu works well. Plenty of warm tea and chicken noodle soup and take ibuprophen per directions until the fever is totally gone for 24 hours. We also do a sinus rinse which helps get rid of the snot.

I feel your pain I've been sick for more than a week... Just the usual remedies:
drink lots of water, get extra rest, and wait it out. Hope you feel better soon!

Lots of water, and the vitamin C supps really do work I swear. Whenever my OH feels one coming on he takes 2 a day and it'ls gone within a day or two.

Good luck!

You can try 1000mg of vitamin C twice a day with a zinc tablet. There are some studies that say it can lessen the severity and length of a cold. If you are running a fever, be aware of pneumonia complications and be sure to take mucinex or similar in order to cough out the secretions before they settle in your lungs and cause problems. If you're still running a fever tomorrow, you should call your doctor.

Manuka honey and garlic tabs work well.
