I have things to do and people to see, and come down with a nasty cold. Anybody have any quick relief ideas to get me thru? Something to mask being sick?
Thank you in advance.

If you are sick and need to see people, postpone seeing these people. You do NOT want to spread your germs and get others sick.

Hasn't this pandemic taught you this?

If it's a cold, it will be gone in a week. Reschedule your activities for a week later.

On the other hand, if you really despise these people you will be seeing, go ahead and spread your germs and get them sick too. No big deal, right?

Oh yes I am very up on the zinc, hand washing etc, but this happened. I canceled one appointment today but really need advise if there is anything out there to help the stupid common cold. How frustrating we cant fix this. Even cold meds wont shut off the runny nose.
Thank you returning2USA!

For the sake of the people you're supposed to see, reschedule and stay home. You're contagious, and you need to rest.
