Lock him in a room with some Kleenex and the T.V. clicker.
I hate the Manflu. Can he take a cool shower/bath? Also, if you're into that sort of thing, I like Theives oil mixed with coconut oil and rubbed on the bottom of my feet for cold/flu crud. Works like a charm! Smells funny though.
You poor thing! The only thing worse than a Mancold is a Manflu.
My DH has been battling stomach ailments since June and there are days where I want to buy him a one-way ticket to Milwaukee and let his mother deal with him. Mostly when he started self-diagnosing himself via Google and called me at work about every 30 minutes with something else he thought he had.
Ginger tea. I gave it to my Dad during his Manflu about a month ago and he is now addicted to ginger tea with honey, thinks he invented it and recommends it to everyone as a cold remedy! Even though I had to force him to drink it the first time.
Anyways its a natural anti inflammatory and the honey is good for a sore throat.
It helps settle a stomach as well, and I believe its supposed to be good for the immune system. Just chop up some fresh ginger and steep in hot water for 5 minutes, and add honey before serving.
