How to get rid of a cold?!

Question: How to get rid of a cold?
I know that's there's not yet an actual proven remedy for colds, but do any of you have any methods you use to rid yourself of a cold?
My symptoms are:
- An either blocked or extremely runny nose.
- Fatigue.
- Blocked ears.
- Head feels full.

Thank you so much.
Also, do you think I should take tomorrow off school? I am experiencing the worst of my cold at the moment and have already given it to one of my mates. The work I would miss isn't an issue (its the last week of term).

Thanks :)


If you're having a really bad cold, then stay at home.

Drink some medicine. If your nose is really blocked, use a nasal spray or use vicks vapor rub. Rub the vicks on your chest and on your back. rub some of it on your foot and put a sock on. If you have a runny nose, you should blow your nose so you can get rid of it faster. Have lots of sleep.

Get well soon :)

Me. I have a cold too :(

The method I use which gives me good relief from cold is Shivalinga mudra - check this link on how to do it -…

I keep my fingers that way and sit relaxed & straight for nearly 20 mins which gives me immense relief from a running nose. You can try it too.

Alternatively, you can go for a medical nasal spray.

Avoid touching your nose directly with your fingers when you're in public places to avoid exposure to germs & cold.
