Hot chicken soup with plenty of black pepper and Sriacha chile sauce in it. Clears the congestion, hydrates, replenishes electrolytes, gets you some protein and carbs, and...it's comforting.

Try to stop being a girl.

Whatever it is I caught it from your girl so you will get it soon enough. Thankfully it isn't making me itch.

Alcohol is a diuretic, which is probably not the best thing to take if you have a cold. Cough syrups may help with the cough, but they can also make you drowsy or more depending on the active ingredients. Dextromethorphan, a typical ingredient in cough syrups, is a cough suppressant, but you gotta watch how much you take 'cause it can and will alter your mental state and spatial awareness if you accidentally take too much. Some syrups contain Guaifenesin, which is an expectorant - it basically helps you expel mucus by thinning it out and causing it to drip everywhere. You probably don't want to take anything with Guaifenesin in it if you're looking for a short term fix since it's one of those things that will make you feel better in the long run but hell of a lot worse in the short run.

If I may ask, which symptoms are bothering you the most?

Nibbles, you're too smart for your own good. lol

All in good fun, just downed some Theraflu, I have to watch it closely because of the immunosuppressants I'm on.

Chicken soup is the cure all.

Also a bit of honey, tea w/ honey or hot water w/ honey for the cough/soreness of throat.

I also use essential oils. A little peppermint oil always clears up the sinuses.

A quart of good "Hillbilly Moonshine" And you won't give a S#!t about a minor thing like a cold. Make you have a great time fighting but may not help your game.

Some sort of amphetamine?  :-X   To answer your question honestly, most people around here recommend either a combination of whiskey and honey or whiskey and peppermint.

I left the Doctor's w/ an acute case of pneumonia and that night played hockey.

I was young and dumb but I'm still here.

After the game try some Baily's Irish Cream
