      When you get a cold or a flu what are your usual steps to help you clear it and start to feel better?

      Usually for me it is going to bed earlier after having a hot lemon and honey (lemon and honey drink with paracetamol) and also making sure I have plenty of citrus fruit such as oranges.

      That is true, especially if it is a really bad flu in which you do not have the energy for anything.

      I remember this time last year I started to feel ill, it started with a sore throat and I though that it was because I was just feeling run down with the Christmas rush, following day it got worse and as the days went on it got worse with a very chesty cough and fever and no energy to do anything, ended up going to the doctors only to find out I had a chest and throat infection, was not pleasant at all and especially on Christmas week.

      Whenever I have colds and flu I would just rest/slep a lot and then eat fruits and other healthy foods. And also drink a lot of water and some other liquids like fresh fruit juices, tea and milk. If it would not work, I drink herbal tea like oregano tea and just more rest/sleep.

      Can also take some soup to relieve the flue, as it's warm and stuff.

      Nowadays many people make use of nasal spray for fast and effective result. inhaling steam is a wonderful remedy suggested by many individuals. Even having a hot soup might help in dealing with this problem.

      Hi Adrian and welcome.
      We had to delete your link to Viagra unfortunately but I feel I need to point out that unlike yourself the other men on this forum are real men and have no need for Viagra.

      for any type of sickness i get, i take a dose of nyquil, and go to bed early, and i dress warmly in bed so i can sweat out the cold, it usually works for me, although the next day i get a bit woozy.

      At the start of the cold or flu I use a old remedy which is
      1 teaspoon of whiskey
      1 teaspoon of honey
      1 table spoon of hot water mixed all together and drink
      then bed

      Cold meds of some sort, plenty of rest, liquids, vitamin C. ecchinacea and zinc lozenges for the sore throat.
