colds definitely suck...I hate them! If your fever is high, you might have the flu.
For stuffy nose, you might consider to try the netti pot.
keep your fingers out of your mouth as best you can after you heal....totally unavoidable sometimes, like when someone sneezes and you happen to walk into the cluster of spit spray...ugh!
If you start snorking yellow-green or green or grey stuff...see the doc..you probably have a secondary infection.
