My husband started sneezing on Saturday morning. We were not sure if it was a cold. By Saturday night, he was down for the count. Sneezing, runny nose, complaining,etc etc. He did the usual soup, over the counter meds, sleeping thing.
The rest of us resorted to avoiding him, washing hands a lot and using lysol liberally. He was miserable Sunday and Monday too. On Monday morning I felt it coming on. My sister mentioned that she had used the Zicam melting lozenges and felt they had helped her. As soon as I felt the congestion, I bolted over to the drug store and picked up a pack.
I started dissolving one of these tablets in my mouth every three hours. As the day progressed I rapidly developed a full blown cold. I was miserable and going through hundreds of tissues. I still kept taking the rapidmelts. Thanks to Pinterest, I made a little cold-craft …(Empty tissue box taped to new one provides a handy little garbage bin)
The next morning I woke up cold-free. I took the pills all throughout the day anyway and I am cured!!! My husband is still at the tail end of his cold
Was it the Zicam or coincidence? Who knows but if you feel a cold coming on, it may be worth a try. The box was about eight dollars and I did not take them all during this "pre-cold"
BTW, it is 48 degrees here in Miami. Where did I put my gloves that allow me to text???
Once again, I did not get paid to write this post. I bought the zicam (and the Kleenex) with my own money.
