I took honey & lemon in hot water and found it great, maybe add a tiny bit of ginger also. Definitely helped me during pregnancy. HTH :wv

i tried honey lemon for a few days and gave in, now taking paracetamol and getting a bit more relief. i know some people really dont like taking tablets. ive tried avoid tablets throughout but the head cold was making me miserable and felt it was moving into my chest.

a bowl of vicks and hot water with a towel over your head will free up your nasal passage and drink plenty of fluids prop your self up with plenty of pillows so you can sleep easier
