So sorry, I hope it passes quickly. I have been getting sick all winter w/ colds. My son brings them home from school and my husband has managed to never get them (knock wood) I get every one! I think I will increase my vit D. I do however second the Zicam. I also use this and I believe it helps to some extent. I also have been nursing my nasal spray of Zicam...I hate that they took it off of the market. Just FYI, someone mentioned to me that they like Emergen C. I don't know however how that would effect UC and I have not used it but thought I would mention it. Feel good!
