I have the worst head cold i have ever had, i have tried all the over the counter remedies i can find and nothing will touch it. Its not the flu, i have had the flu once in my life and thought it was going to kill me.
Anyone know any old time remedies? Like i said ive tried the over the counter stuff but had no joy.
Im open to ideas, as long as it isnt dangerous.
Help a sick guy out ........ please!

Hey Janus, this has been going about since Christmas. My friend had it, family members have had it it's been passed about then returned only the other week to my friend via his brother and they both had to take days off work. Now it appears that my daughter may have caught it.

The only thing that I have found does help and I would recommend is Lemsip cold + flu max strength.
Hope you feel better soon.

I havent tried the lemsip, tried everything else though. Do you take them both together or is it one or the other?
Cheers JAK.

They are the same thing, just one tablet, one a drink.

I have found it to be very effective though. Sometimes the only thing to have any effect.

Hope your feeling a little better.

Hi janus,

I get bad head colds a lot (since i had my adenoids removed from my head)

the best thing to do that i find is

1: keep very warm! but with plenty of ventalation(windows wide open)
rink large ammounts of water
3:eat all the time (have a hot curry when ever possible)
4:plenty of sleep but not a lot of rest as in keep moving, dont just sit around
but DONT!!! do any intense exercise
5:yes lemsips are good
6:alternatavly make the following drink

1 shott of spirit in a cup of hot water
2 2 or more sugars
3 ginger + cinnimon (you can use the powderd from supermarket)
4 squert of lemon juce

drink every 2 hrs

take vitamin c tablets 2000mg a day
don't eat chocolate

when u sleep, try to have your head raised more.

never drink tea or coffee

NEVER go to work (optional)

get some vicks vapour rub or olbas oil
or any other decongestent

get large bowl (that you can fit your head in)

put a some decongestent in bowl
and fill with boiling hot water from kettle
place a towl over your head and over the bowl

takeing DEEP breaths through your nose.

Hope some of these things help you
