Cold remedy advice

#2
Sorry to hear you are unwell. Best remedy is to take paracetamol and ibuprofen (both - they are different so you can get the benefits of 2 drugs) (and make sure you keep topped up with the maximum dose even if you start to feel better) and.... you've guessed it...plenty of water! I suppose warm fluids are best for a sore throat. There is a lot of evidence to show that remedies from pharmacies don't actually work; we buy them to make ourselves feel we are taking care of ourselves. Paracetamol is king for upper respiratory tract infections; cold remedies are a waste of money (but might make you feel better psychologically).

Hope you feel better soon.
