Got up this morning with a runny nose and my first thought was ‘oh no – I’ve got a cold!’
Usually, it starts in one nostril, moves to the next and then, seven days, a couple of rolls of tissue and maybe a sore throat later, it’s gone.
This time I thought ‘no – I’m not going to let it run its course – I’m going to sort it out’. And I did.
Here’s what I did to cure the common cold – I (carefully) cleaned out my ears with cotton buds. That’s it.
Several hours later and my nose has not run since.
