Stay hydrated. Make sure you have water, juice, or even some lemon juice mixed with honey. This will help in soothing your throat and making sure that you don't feel dehydrated.

Get some rest. You really need to rest enough so that your body gets enough sleep. Overworking while you aren't doing so well, would make your body so much worked out.

Try out ginger. Chop some pieces of ginger and mix them with warm water. Gaggle it so that it may help with soothing your throat.

Vitamin C. It comes along in many forms such as oranges, lime, grape fruits and leafy vegetables. Helps reduce phlegm. You could also try out lemonade. This is will help in relieving the respiratory infections.

Try out warm baths. This helps to decongest your nostrils, for better breathing. Remember that during a cold, you could experience difficulty in breathing because of the blocked nostrils. You could add stuff like orange, rosemary or lavender to your water. That scents helps really much because its soothing effect.

If the symptoms persist, you could visit a health facility for further diagnosis since cold doesn't have to take long to heal.

I really hope that we all keep safe and healthy.
