Hi Girls, I have a really bad head cold I dont have the flu though (Thank God!) Any advise what I can take for it? I have took a few panadol. Id usually be stocking up on Neurofen Cold & Flu and also Actifed to clear it. Im just sneezing & snottering all the time. Any help appreciated. Thanks. :thnk

Not much you can take except maybe hot water with lemon and honey in it. Hope it clears soon.

Someone suggeted Ginger and Lemon tea to me, I really think it helped alot, you can get it in Dunnes. You need to drink loads and loads of fluids. My doc told me I was dehydrated and anaemic after my bad headcold. It really knocked me out for a few weeks. Lots of baths, tea, honey, and the odd panadol. Try to keep eating as well. My Mam was mad to give me hot whiskey but I declined! Lots of bedrest as well. Take care

fresh ginger boiled in water, then add the lemon juice and honey, it's a great fix. Drink as much as you can.
