    Heya, guys!~
    It just so happens, that I fell a bit under the weather & cought a cold.
    On one hand, one of the symptoms is a pounding headache that feels more like a sound than an actual headache, just not in the ears, which is frankly speaking... a bit annoying.
    On the other hand, I'm now curious about what the people around the globe have as - or think about - household remedies and wanted to create a place to see the different opinions about it!

    So there are two reasons for this thread, whooho!
    Now if only i knew how to correctly pre-fix that...

    And as always, thanks for reading/your help & may your day/night be an enjoyable one!~

    Depending on the cause of your headache, caffeine can help reduce it.

    Sounds like you have clogged sinuses though, and that requires a decongestant. If you really don’t want regular medicine, try pouring boiling water in a bowl on the table, put your head over the bowl to breathe the steam, and cover your head and the bowl with a big towel to trap the steam.

    Not to ruin your cold or anything, but say... do you have a significant other whose willing to catch your cold via sexual intercourse?

    I know~ I know~ This may seem inappropriate, but such scenarios curse me curious if the myth is real or not? Does sexual intercourse transfer one's cold to their sexual partner after deed?

    I would be willing to pay someone to have sex with an ill person, and document it for research purposes. Yes, for science! No, I would not make it a porno, because be it to others joy or dismay, I am only inclined to fictional women. That said, I seem to be going off topic, but yes, sexual intercourse is likely a household remedy for a cold. For fiction that is, until confirmed by the lonesome pair of loners of counter genders or such.

    Not to break your enthusiasm, but do share your results if likely such an event does happen to you (or already did). If you are willing of course.

    Bye, from your friendly neighbor hedonist!

    Taking hot showers do help me during those times and if you can taking a hot bath is even better

    First of all, i refuse.
    Second of all, biology says no.
    However, its likely such a myth came about as a cold does sap ones energy, whereas you likely regain your energy shortly before the cold is actually gone.
    This leads to a short period of time where you have energy to do things & the cold to infect people.
    Thus, the myth, or at least that would be my reasoning

    Cold bath.

    It's not a household remedy, I just like to do it personally when I get a headache.

    Fairly sure my body is also saying no.
    And i first thought you meant to cold with 'her', so thank you for an image I'm likely not to forget

    Also, @911 this seems like a case for you

    This would probably have the same effect as
    But might be a bit more enjoyable + relaxing.
    It might also help the body, as it wouldnt have to spend so much energy heating up for a fever...

    This would probably strengthen the blood circulation, so the brain gets more nutrients to combat whatever problem there is...

    Both just my conjectures, of course

    @911 you have no case here, officer. This here is but a cold case.

    How's my punch line?
