    Drink lots of plain water. Have some rest. Watch tv or go read some books. In between breaks, drink some tea with echinacea. Hope that helps. Cheers!

    PS: Don't forget to keep an eye at B&S as well. LOL!

    If it's just the onset, half a glass full of Whiskey, nothing less than 12 years, single malt, neat, downed in a single shot will knock the cold out, or you, or both. Jokes aside, that remedy really did work for me

    There is no remedy for flu just drugs to suppress the symptoms. Drink water and rest best cure

    There are some cold remedies you can get from the Chinese Medicine Stores. Alternatively, you may want to try to drink some boiled Coca-Cola with a few slices of ginger.

    boil a few slices of old ginger with skin intact 老姜 with black sugar 黑糖

    effectively provide comfort to the symptoms, but not a cure, so if sickness persist please consult your family physician

    Rest, rest and more rest.

    That's the only cure, as someone said here medication only supresses the symptoms, unless it is a viral flu.

    To add to that, take Vitamin C to build your immune system.. It will help to prevent you from getting it.

    OTC (Over The Counter) -----> Clarinase. There is a new one that is long acting. Need only to take once a day. At least it helps me in the night.

    Hope u get better soon.

    I go to Mr Teh Tarik at China Square for this concoction. Ask for extra-strength halia.
