I dislike being sick. Can anyone give reccomendations on how to treat a headcold? I don't feel congested but there's slight pressure in my ears and my throat is still sore. I coughed up solid yellow the first two days but yesterday and today it was a dark orange, almost red. :( I've been taking nyquil sinus, pounding water and using a humidifier. I feel considerably better than earlier in the week, just tired and a little spazzed about the phlegm thing. I've been sick worse than this before but I feel like this is kicking my ass a little bit.
