It's that time of the year again and I have a terrible head cold. It start a few days ago with sneezing and then went to full on congestion, cough and fever overnight. I woke up a two days ago with the worst congestion headache I have ever had. I thought my head was going to explode. Lucky for me, I had earlier in the year stocked up on cold supplies and one of them was Afrin no drip severe congestion. I got up and tried and and with in 15 minutes my headache was going away and my nose was clearing. This unique formula claims to be no drip from your nose and throat and it most certainly was. I don't know how they do it since it it not a thick liquid but it really does go up and stay there. It also lasted me all day before I had to reuse it that evening before I went to bed. When I have had a congestion related headache in the past, I have spent most of the day in bed because it hurt too much to get up. After using the Afrin, I was up and doing things again with in half an hour of using it. It made this cold much better than other medications and nose sprays that I have used in the past.
