The Dolphin's down with a head cold and wondered if you'd share your best relief ideas for the stuffiness, coughing, fever and the rest of the fun symptoms?

Thank you, sniff, sniff.

Allopathy: Nyquil, hydration, and rest.

Aromatherapy: Vick's Vapo-Rub, hydration, and rest.

Dietary: Chicken soup (which involves hydration by virtue of the fact that it's soup) and rest.

Herbology: Eucalyptus tea, more hydration, echinacea, and rest.

Also, invest in the good tissues, even though it's mostly just an advertising gimmick. The ones with aloe in them really do help keep your nostrils from chapping.

Puffs Plus for tisues, they do wonders for your skin!

Airborn for the cold. I swear by it, my colds are gone sometime the 2nd day. I knolw there was one reported study that showed no effect but I believe the methodology was flawed. Haven't seen any other studies.
