Have you tried ZiCam, I use the nose swabs ,when I feel something is trying to cause me problems with a cold or sinus,I also double up on VitamIn C.
...( those swabs look like a Qtip with jell on, when you pop open the tube )

Zicam

Also make a chewabe version, I like the Cherry Flavor

They have helped me several times with a few different colds.

How do you catch cold there where you are?

I have found that Cold-EZE is usually pretty good at heading off a budding infection. There are times I've taken it at the onset of a scratchy throat or a feeling of oncoming nasal congestion, and found that I'd be back to normal the next day.

This time, the scratchy throat combined with inflamed neck glands came on rather suddenly. Within about two hours I was feeling crappy. The Cold-EZE was too late. Woke up with that kind of cough where it burns and you get that "smell of blood" aroma that follows. So, this has been a lost day. Speaking of which, I've been watching LOST...

Anyway, I remembered that I have some juice oranges in the fridge, so I fired up the cheap Toastmaster juicer and sipped the orange elixir. I'm not sure if it's partially due to the placebo effect, but I feel a little better.

Yes, keep Zicam in the truck, the quick dissolve tablets. I keep Cold-Eze at home, I think they work better, but take 15 to 20 minutes to dissolve, and leave your mouth feeling/tasting very odd. Makes everything taste funny for a long time. That's what I meant by zinc lozenges. Have taken them at 1st sign for last several colds, they do definately reduce the severity. Take them for 3 or 4 days. Feeling run down today, but no cough or anything the last several colds I have gotten. A Guy

A Guy that's one reason why I like those swabs , once in the nostril, that's it , no after taste.
I hope you,ll be feeling chipper again soon, I really dislike feeling bad or rundown.

Hope you get better soon Bill, so far this winter I've managed to keep the infections away but I doubt it will last.

I don't envy you having to do house calls this time of year Bill. With my job, I visit a lot of places as well, but at least it is outdoors and away from enclosed areas. I hope you get over it soon!
