Snot clearance

#1
Right troops, I'm about as snotted as it's possible to be, and I'm getting sick of it. What's the quickest way for me to clear my head and chest?

Before tomorrow would be ideal, but failing that I'll be happy with any cures that'll get me sorted for Sunday.

Thanks in advance for any tips, tricks, home remedies etc.

Very hot deep bath, drinking a half bottle of brandy to start with. As the nose clears snort very salty water up your nose which should clear that out. Follow with a cocktail of any drugs with an 'a' in it.

JJ, I had no brandy, so I had some whisky and a couple of aspirin instead.

BB, cheers for the ideas, I'm not sure about the ginger though, but the curry was good.

KB, no caffiene? Are you insane?

Sudafed capsules (not tablets, they're slightly different) will dry up your sinuses, but have side effects like dehydration and possible increase in heart rate. They also do not seem to work on me for the first two days of a really bad cold. Otherwise its the towel and the menthol inhalation, and possibly camomile tea to help you to sleep. Hope you get well soon.

go to supermarket buy some onions and then spend 10 minutes chopping them, that should do it.

Don't shoot the messenger mate. Big cup of joe may pep you up, but it will make the blood vessels in your sinuses dilate and further constrict your breathing. It's actually the swelling of your sinuses, rather than snot, that is giving you grief.
Mind how you go with the sudafed as well, too much keeps you awake and makes your mouth drier than an camel's cu nt.

The cold catching season appears to be back, so perhaps this is a good time to mention a couple of old wives' cures. Sniffing creosote or hot tar is supposed to be a good way to clear one's tubes. This might have been better in the old days, before they changed the formula for creosote, and when they still used pure tar on the roads. I'll try the creosote next time I catch cold, though, nothing venture &c.

Why Does sudafed have caffeine in it then ? or is it to keep you hooked on the drug thinking its doing you good ?

Menthol crystals, antihistamines and ear buds..

It's not a cold, it's hay fever. Trust me.
