How to cure the common cold?

Because I've got something of a weakling immunity system, I'm suffering with a case of the common cold. Usually I'll just ride it out, but it just seems to be getting worse.

Can anyone suggest an over-the-counter medicine to help me rid this blasted cold!
 
Get pissed, works a treat , then the following day go for a run, if it doesnt cure you, it will kill you lol, but at least your cold will be gone !

Take a 30 day dose of Echinacea twice a year. I used to catch colds at the drop of a hat, then started the above regime. I still catch colds, but not as often, and they don't last as long, for what it's worth.

Go to Boots and get Vicks First Defense.it been created with the Porton Down Common Cold research Unit.It works a treat!
 
With a username of Peter, I guess you are a man, therefore stop playing down the seriousness of this matter!

You are obviously suffering with MAN FLU, a viral strain that women will never experience and therefore cannot dispute.

They do not realise the severity of MAN FLU, and unlike the myth of how painful childbirth is (!!!!!) they always tell us to get on with it when we suffer MAN FLU.

I sympathise with you, you are obviously an extremely brave guy for playing down such a serious medical ailment.

Good on you.

Brandy and Honey is worth a try - it tastes nice even if it doesn't cure your MAN FLU.
 
I always buy a litre of fresh orange juice from a supermarket and down it. Doesn't matter if its value or expensive, its the hit of Vit C that does it for me
 
I suggest taking a whole packet of laxatives.

It might not cure the cold, but it'll stop the coughing and sneezing - you'll be too bloody scared to.

Lemsip cold and flu capsules are pretty good, alternatively effervescent co-codamol mixed with effervescent vit-C about every 4 hours.
