    I have a cold. Do you think a steam room would help me?

    It might unblock your nose, but colds tend to last a week whatever you do, you can take everything on the market and you'll still have your cold for a week, all you can do is try to minimise the symptoms, drink lots, go to bed and slob if you can, if you've got someone to act as a tireless love slave who'll bring you tempting snacks and lemsip that makes it so much better :)

    1. Get a bottle of hydrogen peroxide (3%) from your local pharmacy.
    2. Tilt your head to one side and fill one ear canal with hydrogen peroxide using an eye dropper. Fill the ear canal completely. This assumes you do not have a ruptured ear drum!
    3. Within one to two minutes you will notice bubbling in the ear. This indicates that the peroxide has found something that should not be there. Let the peroxide stay in the ear until it stops bubbling. If the bubbling has not stopped after five minutes, drain out the peroxide and refill the ear with fresh peroxide. When the bubbling has stopped, drain out the ear.
    4. Repeat the procedure on the other ear.
    That's all there is to it! It is important to perform this procedure at the earliest signal of cold onset. If this procedure is done in a timely fashion, the symptoms that signaled the cold onset will subside within a few hours and you will not come down with a cold. As an added bonus, the hydrogen peroxide dissolves ear wax and will leave your ears free of wax and free of disease causing pathogens.

    This method works because the rhinovirus which causes colds enters the body through the ear canals and the hydrogen peroxide kills the virus before your body gets infected.

    I just finished with a cold. The only thing that seemed to help was to admit I was sick and to sleep, and stay home....

    I have to say that Dr. Simmons' assertion that rhinovirus enters the body via the ear canal is not accepted by the medical community at large.
