We've been fighting it in my family for a month now. I had a touch of something, but it seemed to go away. Then my wife got it, then the two kids and now I've got it (again). Sore throats, fevers, coughing, headaches....the whole nine yards. Wife was diagnosed with bronchitis (probably let it go a little too long), kids had sinus/ear infections. I have a touch of Bronchitis. This has been the worst month in a long time as far as family illness goes. I'm on Amoxicillin, Mucinex and was given Allegra to try.

Happened to me in December 2005. Guess there's something about this time of year.

I remember the looks I'd get when I would cough.

This is what I was thinking, too. I can usually handle the rest of the year, but mold and mountain cedar torture me.

I thought it was just me. Got caught in the rain while camping last weekend and wound up with the sniffles, sneezes and a sort throat. Went to the Dr. Monday and said it's just the crud.

The way this thing goes, you did good going to the doctor early on. It may have just been "the crud" on Monday, but if you let it go the potential was there for it to get much worse.

5 weeks now and we (as a family) are finally able to say we feel better.

Dayquill seems to be helping. That and saline sprays, eyes drops, drinking lots of water, Vicks vapor rub, puff plus tissues by the ton, hot showers, peppermint candy canes, hot beverages and having two dogs laying all over you for warmth and comfort.

I will again promote the neti pot. It keeps your sinuses flushed. I have not had trouble in over 2 years since using it. I use it daily w/o salt in a hot shower. It's a lil gross, but I can breathe free and easy. Granted if you already have a sinus infection it really serves no purpose. More of a preventive measure. I got mine at Sun Harvest, now Sprouts, for around ten dollars.
