My mother always gave me warm lemon water with honey. I hated it but it always worked. I just use lemsips because they taste nicer 🤣

I always drink hot lemon water with honey in and some paracetamol to keep my temperature down, always works a treat 🙂

I know this will sound revolting but a teaspoon of turmeric with a glass of water 3 times a day. I used to have to have it as a child & it went in a few days but that depends on how bad your cold is

I work in a chemist - pretty much everyone swears by echinacea, if you can get some... also anything with vitamin c, orange juice, smoothies, carrots... would also recommend a hot bath with menthol crystals... also if you are desperate, Night Nurse is AMAZING stuff to get a good nights sleep, just not recommended if you need to get up early coz it knocks you out!

Whiskey, the good stuff. It usually does the trick. I have it beat, but you can perhaps mix it with honey and lemon

My son swears by honey in hot water with a squeeze of lemon. He says it taste good too. Sounds disgusting to me.

You can't get rid of cold any quicker. Yet many believe a good high level of vitamin C taken throughout the day to keep you at maximum levels is mean to keep some of the worst symptoms away so you can get on with things.

you could try boiling a can of regular coke, adding a bit of ginger or lemon to it, and then drinking it - it is supposed to help
