Comforting Items When Fighting The Common Cold
If you're fighting one of those nasty rhino viruses, be it a nasty winter, or the dreaded summer variety, there's nothing worse than having to suffer through it without some very basic human comforts. Afterall, we tend to feel inhuman enough when these things hit, and it's nice to have a little comfort for all the symptoms, including your battered and bruised self esteem once this bugger takes you down.
Mucinex D may be expensive, but it's worth every penny when you need relief from , "The Dreaded Mucous Monster." THose ugly green boogers on TV are a rather tepid interpretation of the stuff that this will make you heave from your lungs. That may not sound to appetizing, but better in the kleenex than down the throat I always say. I really was glad the day this stuff hit the market. Seriously, I used to be a fairly heavy smoker, and this stuff gets me over a cold long before it has time to become something worse.
Puffs are a nice touch. The commercial where the red-nosed Pinnochio -Looking kid gets relief from these is no exagerration. When my honker gets to hurtin' these are the only things that don't inflame the sensitive skin around the nostrils even worse. I'm a big fan of these, and I'm pretty sure this is the brand that got all the others started towards addding lotion, and other such things.
Bear Creek Chicken Noodle Now no chicken noodle is as good as home made, but this stuff makes a pretty good base. You still really need o add your own whole chicken for the fat and broth, some more noodles, and veggies, but as a base--this stuff is unbeatable. When I'm not sufferingfrom a cold and can tolerate extra dairy products, these guys make a great Potato Soup that can pass for heome made if you add more cream and potatoes. Everyone knows you need good chicken soup to get through any cold, and this stuff certain helps make it easier.
Cayenne Pepper When the Vick's Va-O-Rub, and Fisherman's Friend's lozenges aren't quite cutting it--put a dose or two of this in your chicken soup. It will certainly help clear o out in more ways than one. Many is the time I took this stuff to heart, added extra jalapenoes to my food, and other such hot and drastice measures. I'm not sure if the Rhino Virus raises the white flag because it got burnt out, or if it's just the momentary ability to "breathe again", but I am definitely a believer in this stuff if a cold threatens to take a turn for the worse and other methods aren't quite getting the job done.
Vaporizer These too are a bit on the old-fashioned side, but there's not much out there than can compete with them when it comes to simply getting that drippy clogged up spigot of a nose back in gear. It's hard not to go with the name brand in vaporizers. I'm a very big VIck's fan, and always will be. Sometimes, just a little under the nose at night when the air is a bit too cold and moist sure feels good.
