Sounds like you've got a head cold or a sinus infection possibly?

I normally don't take medicine when I've got a cold or flu (apart from a fever reducer if my temp is high), but for the most part, I just try and rest and drink plenty of clear fluids for a day or two.
...Drinking green tea is a good idea, have it with lemon (for it's vitamin C) and honey (throat soother).

Do you take a multivitamin or a vitamin C tablet daily?

yeah, just rest. over the counter cold medicines don't do anything except alleviate the symptoms anyway. Make sure you get plenty of fluids, and green tea never hurt anything. It's very good for you.

I get that all the time. Sleep is your only friend. A warm shower I find helps for a bit too. The humidity loosens up the phlegm a little, letting you breath and easing the symptoms enough to get to sleep.

Actually, cold and flu remedies that contain paracetamol and decongestant 'DO' help.


I guess the products will vary from country to country, but for something like that^^^ there should not be such a difference.
