This happened to me. Throughout Nov and Dec I assiduously used flu Defence spray, ColdZyme mouth spray, and a variety of antibac and antiviral hand foams, repeatedly throughout the day and any time I came near anybody who looked remotely hoaching, so that I could avoid all of the bugs doing the rounds on my train and in the office. Success! I was the only person at the Christmas parties who wasn’t glued to a hankie.

Finished up work for Christmas and NY, completely let my guard down and stopped with all of the sprays and foams and stuff, went to a family party on the sunday before Christmas where the Italians like to kiss you quite full-on in the face several times, and the place had about 30 tots running about with snotty faces, and sure enough by new year I had the worst upper and lower respiratory infection I’ve ever had in my life. I am now on week 5 of it and truly sick of it (although starting to feel better ‘in myself’, if still very weak.
I read something on here yesterday about you not being in the mood for red wine which had me very concerned, and wondering if you really ought to be seeing a doctor sooner rather than later, dear boy. Or like phoning an ambulance or something.:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::rofl:

I have The Cold That Will Not Fuck Off.

Googled! It looks like a good blend of things that I already take (elderberry, vitc, garlic and vitd.) The elderberry has been a revelation (and of course I stopped taking it over xmas too and then got ill.)
I defo need to get back on my placebos pdq.
