I've caught a stinker of a cold and want to get rid of it quick, before Monday! Don't want to resort to heavy medication and need to be better by Monday! And is there a way of avoiding getting a rudolph red peeling nose? I have all the usual, runny & blocked nose, cough, hot eyes etc etc.......I'm not going to be looking good at all for Christmas at this rate! (Curse public transport and people who cough on you :x )

my mom always told me to "feed a cold". I asked what she meant and she said to make sure you eat plenty...even if you dont feel hungry...i did this and took dayquil the worst of the sypmtoms were gone in two days. i had a half runny half blocked nose for a few more days, but it wasnt too bad

We always take extra Vit. C when we have a cold and drink lots of fluids, get extra rest and let your body heal.

Annette, I feel for you....Since you are in France, I don't what is available, but I take a ton of Zinc when I'm sick(it strengthens the immune system). Vitamin C is also good. Zicam is awesome, but I don't think you can get that over there. I used to have it sent to me from the states when I was in Ireland....Hope you feel better. I hate being sick at the holidays....
