Wednesday I woke up to a scratchy throat. Seemingly in an instant, I had a really bad cold--sore, scratchy, tickly throat; drippy, stuffy, raw nose; and exhaustion (that deep-in-your-bones weariness, so different from sleepiness). I'm not writing to complain but to share how well my favorite remedy works.
After reading the box (it's been a long time), I upped my dose to 6 lozenges a day. Cold-Eeze only works for me when I rest too, so I went to bed on time or even early. By Friday morning, although not 100%, I was well on the road to recovery. I've even been able to breathe normally most of the day! A two day turnaround--impressive.
Once again, my advice boils down to :
- Cold-Eeze (early and often)
And for sick-time skin care, may I also suggest: Puffs Plus (with lotion) and Vaseline on and under the nose at bedtime.
Well, that's enough grannyish guidance for now. Be well!
