    Well, as I find myself sitting here watching MNF I can tell I am getting sick... That being said, what do you do to get over illnesses?

    Usually takes me about a week to get over a cold. The best thing I can do is to sleep or rest. I am always taking an OTC allergy med, so I usually keep with that. If I'm not already, I begin using the Neil Med nasal rinse twice a day. I also start taking airborne or it's generic form when I start getting a cold. Then I supplement with cold medicine like contact, mucinex, real sudafed, or tylenol. My goal is to keep it from becoming a sinus infection which requires a doctor visit and an antibiotic or steroid.

    I had a cold recently and went to the doc before it could turn into an infection. Got a prescription for some nasal spray that's a cortisteroid. I used to use the same stuff a long time ago. Man, it makes a huge difference in my allergies and sinuses when I use it daily. I'm not sure why I ever quit using it other than it's $60 a refill. Hope you get over it quick.

    Usually I sleep, sleep, sleep.

    I used to not care, coming in to work and it just prolonged my sickness.

    Sore throat: pour honey and lemon into a teacup and microwave it, it will make your throat feel better than taking halls.

    cold/flu: Nyquil and plenty of sleep

    I agree with nofords08, my parents are from Laos and over there, there is no nyquil and stuff like that...so as kids when we get a fever my mom would wrap us in blankets and make us sweat it out...

    Zicam, but you need to start taking it right at the onset of a cold.

    It is a zinc-based homeopathic medicine.

    I have avoided many colds by hitting this stuff early and often.

    Raises your core body temp to kill baddies i.e. bacteria, or viruses causing you to get sick, that's why it works

    My Remedies is Plenty of Sleep, Call Of Duty, chicken soup, Hot Peppermint Tea, chloroseptic spray, halls, penecillin, hot showers and sex.

    I think I almost if not got like pneunomia or something this last month because i was sick for a week but i had a cough that lingered for well over a month. Either that or laryngitis. I don't know, gargled mouthwash to kill what ever baddies was in the back of my throat, and it helps too. alcohol kills! :D
