Woke up with sore throat, headaches, and the sniffles. Im still in a weird half flare and I was wondering what you guys do. Im scared to take any tylenol or anything in case it makes my flare worse. Usually i abuse the neo-citron. Thoughts?

Tylenol won't make your flare worse. Its the one kind of otc pain med that won't. When I get hit with a cold I use the Mucinex line of meds. Helps me a lot. Robitussin cough medicine is helpful too but may give looser stool depending on how sensitive you are to cold meds. Hot tea is wonderful for a sore throat.

Feel better.

I would probably go for tylenol as well. I have take other medications on necessary occasions and I've been okay but if I were flaring, I would be more hesitant to take an NSAID.
