Let This Easy Cold Shortening Remedy Help You Feel Better Faster.

No Time to Be Sick? Try this Cold Shortening Remedy is my honest experience using Zicam® as part of a sponsored series with Socialstars.

Right now it is the busiest time of the year in my job and my life. Getting sick is definitely not an option for me.  Right now I need to be extra vigilant. My mom is ill and I’m staying with her providing the extra care she needs.  Just before my mom was scheduled for surgery our whole family was together for Thanksgiving. We had a house full of family members as young as two and as old as 75. While I love having family around, it usually means the sharing of germs is plentiful.  I’m always washing my hands to ward off those germs,  but started to panic a bit when the sniffles and coughing started.

My mom’s surgery took place this week. Her and the rest of my family are relying on me to be with her before, during and after her hospital stay. Being sick really isn’t an option. I needed to find a cold shortening remedy and fast. Drinking a lot of water and trying to get enough sleep weren’t going to cut it. It was time to start Zicam® Cold Remedy Medicated Fruit Drops.

An Easy Cold Shortening Remedy

Zicam® Medicated Fruit Drops come in a mix of three distinct flavors: orange, lemon and cherry. They are delicious and easy to take with you anywhere. I had my bottle on the ready in the surgical waiting room and made sure it was in my purse each day when I visited the hospital.
