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 :bsmilie:

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.

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

Cheers

a peg of whiskey or brandy. Guaranteed to work, at least on me.
