    a lot of zinc helps (its kinda harmful, but won't hurt you..it'll kill the cold virus)
    as well as tea..a lot of hot green tea
    and yerba mate

    antioxidants in that stuff will help immunity

    drink a ton of fluids

    and that cold-eeze shit works, but only in that it shortens the duration of the cold and decreases its severity, doesn't cure it.

    all that stuff will put a dent in it
    there is no cure for the cold
    (it is a virus with literally thousands of variants so your body can't build immunity to every type and no antibiotic can crush even a fraction of the strains..it mutates to quickly to be contolled)

    good luck

    If you start getting congested, here's a trick my girlfriend taught me:

    While in the shower, take a cup and fill it up with warm water. Add salt. Mix. Plug one nostril, close your mouth, lean your head back, and pour the water up one of your nostrils. It'll feel weird, but not bad. Let it sit in there for a few seconds, then lean your head forward and let it drain out. Then blow your nose. You should get TONS of crap that had been clogging your sinuses out.

    I'm being completely honest here .. not posting this so you'll drown in the shower. I've tried it a few times and it helps to clear up the congestion/drainage.

    I know this is gonna sound like a complete piece of bullshit that i usually say on this board but this really works. Might be too time consuming for your problem at hand right now but consider it for your next sinus cold.

    I made this contraption that will clear out your head in about 15 minutes. It kinda works along the same lines as what pmb was saying. I had a gas mask with a hose in it. just the piece that goes over your mouth and nose like in a plane or at the dentist when they gas you. I attatched the hose part to a water bottle. Fill the water bottle part way up with boiling water. Now here is the part i dont remember. There is a tube of some jelly menthol shit. I cant remember the name of it. I put that into the water and mixed it around. The menthol steam goes into your sinuses from the little contraption i built and knocks everything out of your head with a vengence. I don't get sinus colds any more.

    Now i just drink my colds to death with whiskey. That seems to work pretty well too.

    My dad used to do the thing PMB said. I guess it works. I have some kind of disease my nose is seriously clogged up 24/7. Ive had a stuffy/ runny nose for a couple years straight now. I think im gonna try that salt water thing. I can always suck this nasty ass snot out of my nose every day but it just plugs up again. My sense of smell sucks horribly as a result of this.

    don't get any pills with pseudoephedrine as an ingredient, they make you feel really weird, in a bad way
