Lots of rest and don't push yourself too hard once you start feeling better.
I hope you feel better soon!

We've been dealing with on and off illness since xmas in our house. Sucks!

Antibiotics won't help a cold.

They can, however, thwart a secondary bacterial advantage that might otherwise prosper against a weakened immune system.

And yes, plenty of rest and.fluids, and eat what your appetite allows. Fighting infections is energy-intensive.

Lots of helpful advice.

When I feel under the weather and can't go to work I pour a bottle cap full of Rum and [url="https://www.priceline.com.au/brand/lemsip"]LEMSIP[/url] into a really BIG mug of water.

Which I drink while seeking the good cheer of the forums. Smile

I generally keep administering until drowsiness over takes me and thence snuggle under the blankets.

All the very best wishes and cheers.

Antibiotics won't help a cold.

Shoulda said infection.

Viral infections do not respond to antibiotics period, not unless there's a bacterial infection caused by the initial virus.
Edit, just saw your last post, scratch what I just said.
