Anyone ever use zicam when coming down with a cold? My parents are sick, my daughter is sick, DH was sick, girl that lives with us is sick.I started getting stuffy and an itchy throat on Saturday. Started using the nasal swabs. I swear I feel better. My sore throat is almost gone and my nose is only a little stuffy. Was wondering if anyone else had anything to say about it. Oh yeah, read where some people lost their sense of smell and had filed a lawsuit. Sounds like they misused it though.
