Being that a cold is caused by a virus, you can only treat the symptoms. So, these are things that helped me. I take Advil for aches and pains, an antihistamine for my runny nose, if I keep my nose and sinuses clear I'm not as miserable and I don't tend to get a secondary infection. I drink a lot of fluids to flush out toxins, take a couple tabs of vitamin C, and rest a lot. If I fight it or ignore it, it tends to take longer to get over.

Feel better soon.

Oh one more thing, if you have any questions about medication ask your pharmacist or your doctor. I'm not sure what your medical history is, and you might have questions about what and if you should take stuff. I just told you what I do, not sure what would or could apply to you.

The best thing to do is to cooperate with the many built-in factors that the body has to protect itself from injurious viruses. If these are in good condition, they will most likely fight off most of the ordinary cold viruses. So get more rest, go to bed early, avoid undue stress and excitement and perhaps cut down on your eating. As one physician put it: “Sleep well, eat well, avoid getting chilled. Take care of yourself, and you’ll rarely catch cold.”
