Sore throats and colds are going around right now---theres a simple thing that will bting about immediate relief--
Vicks, or any mentholated rub--put a scoop in some boing water--making sure you don't get to close and inhale the steam, it'll clear you up in a jiffy--
for sore throat, rub your neck completly with vicks, cover it and relax--it'll help it go away

Or try Menthol crystals - they work almost too well, so only use one or two in your water

:o)

My paretns always put Vicks in the humidifier for me when I was sick. :) Gargling with apple cider vinegar sooths the throat a bit too.

The best thing for a cold is four quick shots of Irish whiskey.

You'll still have the cold.....but you won't care.

I went out one night to take the dog out and it was misting and cold---about an hour later caught a bad chill and had a time fighting it-hot steaming showers help a lot---the ones where the water is hot enough you look like a lobster and a prune at the same time--
I'm glad your starting to feel better too :)
