    Get a bowl, put boiling water in it. Put your face over it, and put a towl over your head, oh and if you got some of that strong smell thing, to put in your nose, do it !!!!!

    It works !

    Purely for medicinal purposes - brandy, brandy and more brandy!:D

    If it does not cure it - it sure will make you forget about it!

    cough drops containing zinc---or lots of Nyquil and you can sleep through the worst of it.

    Yes you are right! As I live in Sweden and the winter is showing it is on its way, cold and fever is a part of the "fun". And why does it always happen when I am off work??!...:)
    But actually we had a fantastic summer this year..never been som hot in ages..and I think we only had 2 days of rain in July & August. But say those good things that lasts............

    Just checked the temperature here, and at this moment at 1:45am it is +1.6°C.

    Anyway, big thanks to you all for all suggestions...I think I have to stop by "The Shop" tomorrow and get som Brandy, for medical purpose, of course, like you said Damnyank:)

    lol besides drugs and booze, its a known fact that theres no way to cure the common cold, although you can calm its actions by consuming lots of vitamin c, all that will do is settle its actions temporarly. the best thing to do is to let it run its course

    make your body identify the virus in your body and procede to produce anti-bodies to eradicate the virus. supportive treatment is encouraged. research has been done that shows "feeding a cold..." (as the saying goes) cranks up the production of some sort of interfeurn-alpha or interlukin-alpha (one of the two) which is instrumental in the eradication of viruses.
