What are your symptoms.?
For a sore throat herbal tea with honey will help you feel better. The heat will also help clear your sinuses/nose out.
Drink tons of water and orange juice for the vitamin C, also take multivitamin. Eat normally or at least as much as you can, and chicken soup really does help thats not just a myth so have some of that if possible:). Get a lot of rest and sleep. A humidifier by your bed will help with symptoms if you're waking up with stuffy nose, sore throat, etc. I think that dairy products sometimes make you feel worse by thickening the mucus so avoid those for the most part.? If you have a bad cough try Breathe Easy tea if you can find it.

There really isn't a whole lot to do besides that though. You just have to relieve the symptoms as much as possible and wait for your body to fight off the infection.Health Question & Answer
