Cold is very common. Every year, about three million people get a cold. There are many natural ways to cure a cold, including drinking hot chicken soup, staying hydrated with orange juice and water, and getting a lot of rest. Unfortunately, sometimes, the natural remedies do nothing to cure a cold.

This leads to needing medicine. The best to take during a cold is Benadryl, which has Antihistamines. It is the best to take because it helps with clearing the sneezing and stuffy nose that comes with having a cold. Other medicines like Tylenol and Advil also help, because they can relieve fever and sore throat.

Guaifenesin is also a choice for common cold, it is an expectorant, it helps break up congestion and thin mucus to clear airways.
