Well, I’m officially sick for the first time this season. Kind of worrisome now, with the baby and all. This is the first time I’ve ever used Zicam as directed, and let me tell you, the stuff works. Symptoms practically disappear an hour after applying it. I kept a swab on the sink last night and used it at 4am when I got up to go to the bathroom, and I got back to sleep so easily. My nose instantly stopped running. It’s also possible that this was a very weak cold.
(After a little bit of reading…. some Zicam products–including the one I like–have lost FDA approval and have consequently been pulled off the market. Seems like it causes people to lost their sense of smell when they snort the product, some permanently.)
