Zinc.
They do make a zinc nasal gel that you place on a cotton swab and then coat the inside of your nostrils with it. It's called Zicam here though it may have another name in the UK. Depending on how long you have had symptoms, it may not be as effective as using it at the first signs. I've not tried the gel so not sure how well it works. We take zinc tablets along with the vitamin C and it does seem to work at nipping a cold in the bud.

If all else fails - I vote for T's method of drinking a lot.

Try not to let the skin at the end of your nose get dry too- when you've got a runny nose it can get quite sore, a dab of vaseline should help protect it from drying out from all the snot wiping. Hope your cold is better soon. I have one just starting- had a really sore throat last few days.

Anyway- My main grumble for today is I have got 3/4 of the way through the proposal for my main final year assignment on preventing the spread of clostridium difficile and decided its crap (ha ha ha gedditt) and its not the best subject and I'm going to scrap it and start again on something different about recognising the critically ill patient.

I have almost no time left.:(:(

Can't win at the moment.
Spent ages organising a 3-4 week tip through Rajahstan for Feb/March next year and a pack of rabid jihadis fucked it when they went on a slaughter outing in Mumbai.
Just finished organising a 3-4 week trip for Feb/March next year through Bali, Sumba, Flores and Komodo and now find that there is a rabies outbreak in Bali.
Still gonna go though.
You can reason with a rabid Bali dog.

We had 50F on Sunday and it's been 2-4F the last two days. It's now snowing again. I hate winter. Sure, the snow is pretty on the trees but it gets messy and I don't like the cold anymore. Growing up in Minnesota, maybe I should have learned to ski. I mean snow ski as I know how to water ski - there are 15,000+ lakes in that state. Did I mention... I hate winter. You can't water ski in winter.

Just finished 4 days on the jury of a pedophile trial.
Thirteen charges but could only nail the bastard on two for lack of evidence.
Twelve frustrated jurors

Interesting. But does he get a certain amount of years in jail for each case then?

I received a text from a friend of mine in Morondava, Madagascar. Twin cyclones hit and destroyed pretty much all of the town leaving 3000 homeless, his bar and restaurant have been flattened. To top this he advised me that the lovely lady that always looked after me when I was there not only lost her baby, but died herself yesterday.
That sucks huh.
