    How to get rid of a cold before it starts?

    I can feel a cold coming on. I move into school this weekend and REALLY don't want to be sick. Does anyone know how to stop it before it gets worse?

    Thanks.

    -gargle with warm salt water
    -get as much sleep as possible
    -take a megadose of vitamin C

    I've heard good things about Cold fx, but have never used it myself.

    I take tylenol cold to relieve cold symptoms; everything else (including oil of oregano which most people suggest and vitamin C) might give you a placebo effect but it isn't actually doing anything. Get lots of sleep and wash your hands often - normal soap is fine.

    Colds are lame and I'm sorry you're feeling sick.

    My mom swears by taking Zinc at the first sign of a cold.

    Zicam really does work. It tastes like ass, but it really helps.

    Some girl on the street asked if i was saved yet. I told her I saved at the checkpoint a couple minutes back and can reload from there if I die. She was confused.

    I heard zinc works as well. But I've never tried myself.

    Vitamin C, Zinc, Zicam (NOT the nasal one though, it can ruin your sense of smell and kill receptors), and/or airbourne.

    Get some echinacea, too, that really helps your immune system.
