Answer: Warm, salt-water gargles help by drawing out the mucus and reducing the painful swelling in the throat. Salt also quells the itching sensation in the throat. Nasal strips These sticky tabs gently help to open up nasal passages so that you can breathe easier. Drink plenty of water  It is important to stay hydrated as some common cold symptoms such as sneezing and runny nose can cause slight dehydration. Avoid drinks with caffeine as they may dehydrate you. Honey and lemon Hot water with honey and lemon can work miracles. Honey soothes your throat and the vitamin C in the lemon boosts the immune system.  Ginger juice helps relieve the pain.
