I have a cold - my first after diagnosis. Is there anything you would recommend to avoid the hospital trips and respitory infections some of you have mentioned (so scary!)? I've been sticking to my normal asthma/allergy regimen, and I'm trying to get lots of rest.

Is there anything else you recommend?

If you get really stuffy, sometimes steaming helps. Just be cautious with Vicks or other smells. You can react even if you never did before.

Wow! I never considered that I might have a reaction to the Vicks, but that makes sense. Thanks so much for the tip!

And try to minimize sweets like sugar-based cough drops. You don't want thrush and a cold!

You are so right I have both at the moment the Thrush is killing me this is now my second course of antibiotics as the lung infection just moved its way down and now I have a bladder infection. I also have had a hoarse voice and can now hardly talk it must be all the steroids that I'm taking

I love Vicks rub I use it first I feel the cold coming on, just don't put it in your vaporizer unless you have liquid Vicks. It could cause serious damage
