How in the world can a cold knock you dead off your feet?! Holy freakin crap. ($@^#) Where is mom when you need her the most to rub your back and tuck you in? Ha! I knew it was going to get me when I watched my husband go throughthe whole process for 3 full days! Then it hit me like a truck. So of course I turned to Google and sent my husband on a trip to Walgreens! He of course used only NyQuil…why? Because he’s a guy. LOL.
Not me. I needed a game plan and I need relief! I’m not a doctor and none of this is prescription or guaranteed to work, but it really helped me so I had to share.
1st: Hydration! I had water mostly, but Gatorade really did the trick for me.
2nd: Vaseline. Amazing how when you’re growing up it’s always there, but I never had it in my own home. This will last forever! After all the nose tissue touch ups this REALLY helped.
3rd: Speaking of nose touch ups…can I just tell you Puffs Plus Lotion is life changing? Oh my gosh it smells SO good and it’s SOOO soft. Wow.
4th: Vicks Sinex Severe…holy Jesus…thank you for being in my life. WOW is all I can say. It coated my nose in every spot like a cool mist that calmed the irritation, pain and swelling in one miracle spray. No joke…I sat there just saying wow to my husband. Swear. Ask him. I got a full night’s sleep with mouth closed breathing LOL! (Bowing down to Vicks.)
5th: My new bedside Walgreens humidifier. Thank you Walgreens for the cool, moist air.
My bedside was a little cold remedy pharmacy lol! What are you tricks to battling a cold? I’m all ears and ready to be prepared for next time around!
