When I have a cold, I don't take the traditional medicine, or lemon, hot lemon drinks or anything like that. I take ceyene pepper, red pepper powder and I put it in everything I'm eating and that works for me.

What do I do for a cold? When I've got a cold, I will stay at home and my grandmother always gives me a special herb tea for colds, and my grandmother always gives me a hand massage. But now I live by myself so when I got a cold I will just make myself herb tea and try the way my grandmother always did on me. I will massage my fingers and my hands.

When You have a cold I don't think there is anything you can really do. Usually, if I have holidays from work I will go to bed for the weekend, maybe drink lots of hot drink and sometimes eat oranges and citrus fruit for vitimin C, but I think the only think you can do with a cold is to wait it out.

Tres, The United States
Whenever I have a cold, I think it is good to get a lot of rest. It's also good to have a hot toddy - liquor, like whiskey, lemon, honey, heat it up, drink it. Wipes the cold out.

For a cold? You know, actually if I have a cold, I do absolutely nothing. I don't really understand these cold remedies and my theory is that, if you have a cold and you take all of these cold remedies and antibiotics, they don't help because your body is immune to them, so you may as well just not take anything let your body heal itself. That's what I tend to do. Although on occasion, when my cold has been really bad, I have taken somthing.

Simon, Canada
What do I do for a cold? Well, I drink lots of fluids. I like to eat soups, so get as much clear soup down me as possible. I don't get colds that often so it doesn't really matter, or another way is just pretend the cold isn't there.
