Yes take care Albert. I just came down with a non-severe cold too. Apparently I contracted it at my local clinic from my physician?

Thanks waterboy and sorry to hear you're sick too.  No pain no gain. Early flu season.  Yes you're more likely to get sick going to doc's office and getting the shot, unless you take precautions.  Hand sanitizer - and don't touch eyes, nose and mouth.

It will be gone soon enough waterboy. 

Sleusha, I'm a big fan of ziacam.  Nothing ever works on me, lol.  Full steam ahead -

Waterboy, I do hope you get better soon. You're a champ! I found this link that may help:


http://www.artec-inc.net/continue.html
This drug was in a trial for AIDS/HIV/Cancer a few years ago. Whatever happened to it?
TUBERCIN/WELME

If first link doesn't work try this. www.artec-inc.net

If you want more information on this drug contact company president Dr.Ronald Shinn 916-428-3458
Dr.Shinn believes this drug along with Cumadin could help Ebola patients.

Sorry Albert and waterboy.  I have it this week too!  Came down with it Saturday, figured it was just allergies and then it knocked me down monday so I stayed home and slept alot.  Taking sambucol for it.  Feels alot like a sinus infection but it's not.

Hope everyone else stays healthy!

I haven't had a cold in years because I always kick it within 2 days by taking Zicam lozenges. They coat the back of your throat with zinc. The cold virus cannot replicate in zinc. They'll mess up your taste buds a little while you take them, but that is definitely the worst of 2 evils in my opinion. Take them religiously per the instructions on the box and you'll be over it in no time.

I was wondering about Zicam, but I've never met anyone yet that's tried them. Elver, you sound like you've had good luck with them so I'll give them a try next time I start feeling crappy. Thanks for the recommendation Thumbs Up

I've tried the Cold Eeze, but the taste makes me gag.  Am not sure if they are the same as the zicam though.

I just got over a cold that seemed to hang around for weeks, and I saw Zicam (and Cold -EEZE) at the store, and like an idiot I went with the regular menthol cough drops instead. I'll definitely try it next time - thanks again, Elver and Jen.

My 17 year old has tried the cold eeze before & just as Elver pointed out he followed the instructions on the box religiously & his cold was gone in 3 days.  I tried it also but as I said I couldn't hang in there because of the taste (it was cherry I believe) & didn't even make it the first day.

I just use my eight year old survivalist case of Airborne I packed one year after raiding my sons Halloween candy.

Zinc sheets are used under the ridge caps of roofs in mossy moldy climates and inhibits the growth of such down the roof. Sounds logical to me but I would also think it would be toxic to liver.
