I am a compensated Vicks Brand Ambassador. All opinions are our own.
There is nothing worse than when you feel at your worst! It’s cold and flu season and this week I was hit hard with the worst cold and flu symptoms. That’s why when I feel my worst I reach for Vicks DayQuil and for at night VicksNyQuil Severe.
Something that has something for all my symptoms is what I needed to feel better from my body aching to sinus congestion and cough Vicks helps me feel better faster!
DayQuil Severe: Contains a non drowsy pain reliever/fever reducer, nasal decongestant, cough suppressant and expectorant, all to temporarily relieve aches, fever, sore throat, nasal/sinus congestion and pressure, cough and chest congestion.
NyQuil Severe: Contains a pain reliever/fever reducer, nasal decongestant, cough suppressant and antihistamine all to temporarily relieve aches, fever, sore throat, nasal/sinus congestion and pressure, sneezing, running nose and cough.
Both formulas come in a capsule or you can also find a liquid. I like keeping both on hand because I never know what I might use especially if swallowing is painful from a sore throat.
COLD & FLU Tips
- Know the signs. You are most contagious in the first 24 hours when your symptoms are at their worst. If you have two or more of these symptoms, stay home to rest: fever over 101o F, cough, sore throat, running nose, headache, body aches, chills, or fatigue.
- Take a hot shower before bed. Steam and humidity can cause sinuses to drain and relieve stuffiness from a cold. It can also help you to relax, and ease chills, aches and fatigue. Put your towel and/or bathrobe in the dryer so that you don’t feel chilled when you get out, and make sure the room is nice and warm.
- Try tea. Drinking an herbal tea such as chamomile, passionflower or other soothing teas before bed can help you relax while also getting helpful fluids into your system.
- Take a multi-symptom medication. My patients want fast, effective relief to help them get back to their busy lives. Look for a medication that can treat the toughest symptoms while also helping you rest. DayQuil Severe and NyQuil Severe fight your worst cold & flu symptoms so you can power through symptoms during the day, and get the rest you need at night to get back to being you.
