Please help! I'm 2 days away from my wedding and I'm full of cold. I haven't slept more than 5 hours a night (usually less) for over a week and I need some off-the-wall remedies that can shake this thing! This is only the second day of the cold, the sleepless nights I think are due to nerves because our wedding is abroad but I'm as organised as I can be and don't think there's anything else I can do to make it run smoothly, other than relax and get rid of this snotty nose!
Day Nurse capsules xxx
Have you tried night nurse liquid. I had a awful cold last week and couldn’t sleep for days. Pharmacy recommend this took it first night and slept 10 hours.
Can you get hold of homeopathic remedies
This happened to me I even lost my voice I just tried to de stress and relax xxx
Sudafed Nasal spray (blue label) is the best thing ever to unblock your nose! I think it’s the one for sinuses but I use it every time I get a cold and it’s amazing
Antihistamine tablets helped me get rid of my runny nose while I had cold x
Sounds really daft but try smoothies, a hot bath and a book.only think that relaxed me so close to my wedding x
Day nurse and night nurse. Echinacea and multivitamins
Day and night nurse are amazing. They have everything in them you need for a cold. Also start taking echinacea. Also try do things that will relax you and hopefully the cold will run its course (mostly) before your wedding! X
Metatone and lots of vitamin C is my recommendation x
Contac. You buy it over the counter. It's life changing honestly! Best of luck 🤞
Vicks vapo rub on your feet with socks on over night x
Hot drink and paracetamol and sweat it out u in bed ...
Sudafed nose spray!!
Tbh you sound as if you're burnt out, not the cold. Try rest as much as possible
It sounds like you probably just need plenty of water & sleep! Try to relax (I know easier said than done) as it seems like you’re all organised - don’t worry too much about your cold, adrenaline on the day will make it disappear & you’ll forget all about it! X
Vapour rub on your feet x
Homemade honey and lemon throughout the day. Lemon juice fresh is best but I use the bottled stuff too and local honey if you can get some, mix with boiled water. I drink it in between Lemsips.
Drink orange juice u need vitamin c build up also run shower super hot close all doors and windows so it’s like a steam room then go and have a shower take nuraphen cold and flu keep having a steamed shower every night before bed works really well for me x
I always use Beechams all in one syrup. Works wonders for me xx
Keep wrapped up, drink plenty and sweat that mofo out!!!
Have a blanket on you and just keep covered even if you have to binge on tv for the day.
Take plenty of hot lemons and drink lots of orange juice (embrace the D).
Also eat plenty “starve a cold,feed a fever”
Your body needs to recharge to make your living room or bedroom really dark and get plenty of sleep even if it’s just power naps.
If you have vapour rub smear that shit on your chest and back.
Night nurse, the liquid form. And sudafed tablets (the ones behind the counter at the pharmacist, get the drowsy ones which are great if you take them before bed, you'll sleep the whole night through
Rub vix onto your feet and wear socks to bed I’ve had a nasty chest infection this weekend did this and it’s loosened it totally x
Get some vit c in you too. It sounds like you're run down cos of nerves ect. Lemon and honey water and rest. You will probs find you perk up and feel better once you get going.
But defo fresh ornage, and sudafed nose spray as well as the capsules.
Stop worry what will be will be and enjoy it it's you wedding day just go with it is the advice I was give
Sudafed nose spray .
Nightnurse works wonders for me, make sure you take it atleast 12hours b4 you plan on getting up. Gives you a good night sleep.
Metatone immune boosting tonic. Works wonders. Pholcodiene cough mixture. Beconaise nose spray xx good luck n congratulations
4 flu by benalyn its brilliant for me.
Night and Day nurse is very good. Hope you feel better soon
Synsus cold and flu tablets from supermarket there own brand ones they will have you feeling better x
Honey, lemon, a sprinkle of cinnamon, a little grated ginger and then mix it with hot water in a mug, then add a splash of whisky or brandy. It works wonders. Also apple cider vinegar with *the Mother* with water works well too. For sleeping, try Night Nurse and a glass of milk before bed. It'll knock you out for 14hrs!
When I cant sleep I watch youtube videos of the little Asian men making pools and huts in the jungle lol will knock you right out I promise, its soothing lol
Hot water,with lemon, fresh ginger, honey and a clove of garlic smashed up in there, tastes rank but always helps me
Sudafed Basel spray best thing ever
Vick vapour rub on feet put socks on overnight.
Paracetamol, a spoonful of honey as and when needed if you have a sore throat or losing your voice. Plenty of rest and olbas oil on your pillow. Good luck hope you get better soon.
Vicks on your feet at bedtime
Aww no! I swear by elemis muscle soak! It’s a bubble bath but I swear this always sorts me out. Best of luck and hope you feel better! X
Put vicks on your feet then put some socks on and go to bed.
Vit D spray
Liquid day/night nurse. It's not exactly pleasant but works wonders fairly quickly.
I swear by making homemade soup and filling it with loads of fresh ginger. It just knocks the cold right out of me. X
Night nurse over the counter is awesome for a cold!!! I prefer the liquid but the day and night tablets work well too
Ginger wine, lemon and honey with hot water. Or Fresh ginger, lemon honey and hot water.
Colds are worse during first 2-4 days .... I'd get yourself some cold flu tablets and wrap up warm ... and REST foremost. Xxx
Anti histamine tablets dry up a cold

aldi cold and flu capsules get rid of all the symptoms
Try putting vicks rub on your chest, loads of it. Then i put some on my forehead, under my nose and along my cheekbones/under my eyes. I shifted mine in about 48hrs max! And thats all i use now. Feel better x
Corvonia night time worked wonders for me. It has an antihistamine in it that helps you sleep to. X
Hot toddy, hot water, lemsip, whisky and a spoon of sugar. Tastes ugh but it does the job. Vicks on feet with a pair of socks and whatever you do don't walk on a tiled floor or you will leave greasy skid marks on the floor after you slide across it.
Plenty of water, lots of garlic and ginger. Take a day to just rest with your feet up
Day and night nurse. Combine with ibuprofen and you can get a throat spray to numb your throat too :)
Get some extra strength vitamin c from asda on the medicine aisle. Some menthal crystals from the pharmacy. Drink plenty of water and just try and relax. Make sure you moisturize and use Vaseline to stop the skin on your nose looking red and dry on the big day xx
Warm lemonade before bed is what my nan used to say. According to her you can sweat it out overnight.
Vicks on your feet and between your toes when you go to bed
I had a can of cider once heated on the stove and drank it as hot as I could (this was advice given to me) you sweat like mad that night but it shifted the cold so maybe worth a try x
Take some Nurofen cold and flu. 2 tablets at night then 2 tablets 3 times a day and after 4 doses you will feel brand new. I swear by them, honestly they are the only tablets that ever make me feel better.
Vic vapour rub on the bottom of your feet with socks on overnight
Get some day/nights nurse to help with the snot/sleep.
Plenty of fluids, warm ones help loosen mucous! I’d recommend green tea with a slice of fresh ginger, some honey and a sage leaf - anti inflammatory/antioxidants.
Echinacea, vitC and zinc.
Blow your nose with baby wipes - prevents drying out/Rudolph nose!
If you are very stuffy, consider a nasal spray from the chemist to.
Hope you get some rest and feel better for the big day!!
Nurofen cold and flu.....human in 30mins
Old remedy: slice a lemon, two tablespoons of honey and water in a café tiere- add sugar to taste and take two paracetamol before a mug of it before you go to bed. You will sweat it out and feel much better soon
Vicks on your feet 👍
Day and night nurse tablets, they’re brilliant and better than lemsip. 2 days might not have you cured but it should have reduced the symptoms a fair bit, and if your nose is red get the Sudocreme on in and around you mouth too if it’s red as well. In the mean time, manuka honey in hot water with lemon, plenty of water and rest 😊
Plenty of fluids, green tea and honey, paracetamol and alternate every 2 hours with ibroprophen imbetween if you can take this. Calm night time tablets and dowsey he pillow in olbus oil and have a walm drink and hit steamy shower before bed sleep slightly elevated to my noise nasal swelling during night
Honey lemon and ginger hot drink
Manuka honey and night nurse are great. Vick on the feet at night is good too.
Plenty of rum and hot milk. It’ll help you fall asleep and sleep deeply and is my go-to quick remedy. That as well as inhaling steam/olbas oil to clear all the gunk. Good luck x
My nan used to give us a drop of scotch in hot milk with suger and it worked I’m 73 now try it good luck
day and night nurse
Find the strongest manuka honey you can, paracetamol and hot lemonade 😁
Use night nurse and day nurse you will feel better in no time with that stuff
Orange juice woman! Orange juice!!
Face streamer with drops of eucalyptus oil or Friars balsam. I had a stinking cold turned into painful sinusitis due to thick mucous settling. Also Vicks 'FirstDefence' nasal spray has worked wonders kills the gems on back of nose and throat so at least cold doesn't keep adding to itself.
Get some night nurse in ya!!
Get bladdered. It won’t do a damn thing but you’ll sleep for hours lol 😂
Night and day nurse will be gone by day 2! Plus u will get a good night's sleep, it knocks me out lol
Sudofed blocked nose spray is amazing...... use it all the time when I have a cold x
Plenty of greens - kale and spinach are full of vits A and C, fantastic for your immune system! Plenty of fluids also. That and just keep blowing your nose. Get that crap up and out! Remember to moisturise your nose if you are blowing lots! Bepanthen or sudocrem will do the trick. Just slap it on thick! Good luck xxx
Please drink manuka honey strength 10 with
red bush tea bags , always sorts out flu for me when nothing else will kick it ! .....
Plus also try “ tryocets “ as you can buy over the counter @ chemist & has an anaesthetic to cut throat pain & antibiotics to kill infection, no prescription needed ....... 2 orange tubes of tablets in a orange box ......
A few drops of olbus oil and water in a wax melt burner.
Steam yourself, head over bowl of hot water with a towel over hour head and breathe. This also works with the olbas oil and hot water.
Go to a pharmacy and get some vocal zones, often used by singers for a quick fixwith a cold to numb the soar throat so they can sing.
Honey and lemon drink xxxx
Sauna or steam defo help to get rid of cold x
