I guess this should be in the health forum, but fuckit no-one reads that anyway <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif"&gt;

Does anyone know of good cold cures/remedies - especially home made one?

I've tried hot lemonade, hot lemon, lots of things involving honey (some were fun but hey, who said you couldn;t lick it off a partner? - oops, guess that was for the sex forum) and now i've tried my favourite.

Alcohol. Tonight, it was whisky and several measure too <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/wink.gif"&gt;

I figure its an excellent remedy becuase even if my symptoms are still there, I really couldn't give a shit becuase I'm out of my tree <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif"&gt;

So any other ideas?

    alcohol not good <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/tongue.gif"&gt;

    not a cure, but a great help for a blocked nose, is Contac pills - they have pretty coloured things in them! you could also try pouring a bowl of steaming hot water, and sit with a towel over your head inhaling it (the matron at my last school did that every time someone said they had a cold . . . but the towels stank so we just suffered!).

    honey and lemon: you said you'd tried it, but try it again. and there's something in a little pot that emits all sorts of vapour-type things (that smell nice and do away with a blocked nose) that are something like 40p from a chemist, called Vapo-something.

    eat lots of fruit, drink fruit juice, and hot Ribena.

    home-made remedies. other than the towel thing and honey and lemon, just drink a lot of hot drinks, get someone to wait on you hand and foot <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif"&gt; , sleep . . .

    Half a frog roasted in chestnuts, does wonders. Or it will kill you, it's 50/50.

    Hmm..tasty <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif">....

    Maybe a whole load of Vitamin C, some sweets, stay in bed, DON'T SMOKE, hot drinks, and Vics rub. Get your partner to rub it on for you, I bet it'll make you feel loads better <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;
