How do you get rid of a cold as fast as possible?
« on: June 17, 2014, 11:54:25 PM »
Good evening everyone, (or good day)!

My question may sound as if it doesn't fit in the hypochondria thread, but it kinda ties in. So I'll try to make this short.

I'm going on a cruise this Thursday.

I feel a cold coming on, (bad luck I know), and I really don't feel like being miserable on a boat for 3 days which will make my anxiety thrive.

Do any of you kind folks have any remedies that could help make a cold not as bad? I'm pretty sure it's impossible to make a cold go away all together in 2 days, but I'm just trying to make it tolerable.

Thanks!  ;D

Multivitamins, eating well, and drinking a lot of fluid (a lot, a lot) will get you pretty far.

Zinc and lots of it.  Buy a couple packages of the lozenges and take one every couple of hours.

When I went to my doctors because I had a cold and freaked out, my doctor told me to drink plenty of water and rest as much as I could.

I was a big believer of a zinc product called Zicam.  They previously offered a nasal gel which worked wonderfully, but they were forced to withdraw that product when some users complained of a loss of sense of smell.  So all that is left are Zicam lozenges and a Zicam mouth spray, which, for me, do not work as well and also affect my sense of taste on a temporary basis.  There are other generic zinc lozenge products available at lower cost.  The key is to start them at the first sign of the cold.  If you wait, don't bother.
