Yes TheCoffinman, i study in Lviv, smack beside the hospital in the hostel of the med school.
Getting hold of H2O2 is difficult, not even Vit C in the stores. We are very scared of getting out into the streets. I will try the hypnosis. Well now its opposite of positive hypnosis. Even a cough makes us shake in our pants !

Okay. Just let me know. We can use text messaging on mobile phones if you have one.
By the way, you know that alcohol over about 45% concentration can be used as an antiseptic? Here, we have a drink called "slivovitz", which is plum brandy, and the stuff they make in the country here is around 70% to 80% alcohol.
See if you can get hold of some. The locals should know it by a very similar name. Ask older people. They know where there are people who have it for sale. Here, it is tradition in the country to drink a small glass every morning in winter to keep colds and flu away. (We also do but not every morning...) Not sure of the medical veracity, but I should think it will kill any bugs on the way down to your stomach at least.
I'm not kidding. Please see if anyone has some. Worth a try.
