Thanks for talking on the phone.

The following measures would help you;

1) Rest.

2) Plenty of fluids.

3) Deep breathing exercises.

4) Another important home treatment is Menthol steam inhalation - add Menthol salts (available OTC) to a bowl of steaming water and inhale the steam two-three times daily - this will relieve the congestion.

5) Vitamin C tablets will help you. They are taken 500 mg twice a day.

6) Dextromethorphan and guaifenesin combination is one of the best.

7) Nasal saline spray.

8) Benadryl.

All of these are available without a prescription.
