I second the Mucinex. Had sinus problems for years......any cold no matter what the type always goes to my sinus' and micunex has saved me many a sleepless painful night....

and secondly if you dont like the pharma method then go down to your local liquer store and ask for some Rock n Rye and it will clear it up as well....talked to quite a few "Ole Timers" that swear by it

Thanks for all the suggestions. I just mixed Zicam nightime with tea and honey. I have 30 minutes then I'm down for the night. The stuff is like a knock out dart used on large animals

I have bad reactions to some drugs. When I was in Thailand I was taking Larium for malaria. That stuff made me koo koo, crazy full color dreams, flying etc etc.

Then when I got bronchitus in Florida the doc gave me Guefinex (spelling) Works great but my wife said I was "strange" I'm like no I'm fine, she goes no your not. Then she asks me "why did the monkey fall out of the tree" I said I don't know. She said "because it was dead". I couldn't stop laughing for 15 minutes and then decided to quit taking that stuff also <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/zombie.gif" alt="" />

Sambucol

It's an anti-viral, totally natural product.

Remember in Monty Python and the Holy Grail, the Frenchman said; "Your monther was a hamster, and your father smelt of elderberries"? Sambucol is elderberry extract. Used to be the cold medicine of choice for peasants. Now it's pretty darned expensive.

Anyway, it helps a lot. Make sure to get the glucose added one or it'll be really foul tasting. My wife and kids don't likethe glucose version either, but I think it tastes like IHOP rasberry syrup. I like it.

Raley's has it in the health food suppliment section, and most heath food store should have it.

I got knocked flat by what sounds like the same thing you have. My wife never caught it after taking Sambucol. I still have it, but nothing like I did. I haven't been very good about taking my medicine <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

What you should do depends on if it's a simple cold (viral), or if you have had a cold and the inflammation & swelling has led to a bacterial sinus infection. With a regular cold I usually wait it out, haven't really experimented with potions and whatnot, although some of the above suggestions sound interesting enough to try next time I get a cold. But if your snot turns solid yellow and smells bacterial (kind of dough-ey, yeasty) then it's a sinus infection and you should embrace modern medicine and get some antibiotics. Amoxicillin should knock it out pretty well, and for me at least, won't make me <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/barf.gif" alt="" /> like erythromycin.

I've always had success with homemade chicken broth/soup and lots of rest. If the nose is plugged up a nice hot steamy shower is recommended. Oh I forgot, hot tea with a shot of brandy is good too. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/sleeping.gif" alt="" />

Mix 1 tsp salt + 1 tsp baking soda(important) in a glass of warm water. It should be approximately the strength of canned soup, adjust amount of water. Gargle it every half-hour. It loosens up the mucus and is good for a 'head cold'.

Speakin' of peppers, I was sent a section of the Dallazz paper a few years back, howled my butt off reading it; found part of it on line. Hijack unintended, but the occasional bite of kimchi will make ya forget about a hella head cold too.
