  1. I hate a sore throat, I combat it with halls

  2. Boy do we need this. We have had a steady stream of colds going through our house for the last two months! I think we have only all been healthy at the same time for a total of one week. Yikes! We do chicken soup for colds, lots of tea and honey and saline to clear stuffy noses.

  8. The dreaded head cold – so hard to concentrate when you have one! We use good old honey & cinnamon mix to combat it at first sign

  10. I feel a cold coming on – would love to have this! lol

  11. With cold and flu season coming up, I’d love to win a basket like this. Thanks for the opportunity.

  13. Stacey Peters says:

    My worst fear is the dreaded chest cough/ cold. I have asthma so it affects me real bad in an attempt to keep it away I wash my hands regularly and try to eat a healthy well balanced diet and when I feel a cold come on I treat right away.

  14. what person doesnt need this?! definitely would come in handy with cold/flu season here! thank you for the opportunity to win this :)

  15. I guess my most dreaded is anything involving my lungs or nose. I have enough problems trying to breathe on a regular basis without the added difficulty thrown in.

    What do I do to combat it? I avoid sick people.

  16. lornar couponer says:

    we have lots of advil and tylenol cold products in the house because someone always is sick all winter long

  17. A dry cough is the worst. I drink lots of cough syrup and try to keep the house with lots of humidity.

  18. Christy Martin says:

    I could have used this last week! That being said, I am sure I will need in again once the weather really turns cold!

  24. Oh do I so need that! I get a cold and it seems to last the winter.

  25. Donna Williams says:

    Perfect timing!!!

  26. The constant coughing and stuffed up congested cold that I seem to get every year and it lasts for at least 2-3 weeks.

  27. We definitely need something like this. Cold season is terrible for my son who has asthma. We run the humidifier around the clock…lots of vitamins and saline.

  28. Kattrina Lacasse says:

    I hate having a sniffy nose. No being able to breath when I am trying to sleep is the worst. I use a nasal spray to help, but they only do so much

  29. Hate runny noses… just use their sleeves and don’t wash enough. Ugg we use kleenex with lotion and antibacterial hand soap.

  30. I seem to be getting sick alot more now since I got my new job working with the public. This will come in handy!

  31. My most dreaded illness is my 18 month old getting sick. I bought that humidifier pictured a month ago and it already sounds like a jet engine. Of course I don’t have the receipt to return it. Not pleased.

  32. I hate the flu. The fever and the aches in particular. I try to prevent that with a flu shot and take neocitran when I need to fight it off.

  33. Natalie @Nat_Rea says:

    Would love to be well-armed for cold and flu season!!

  34. Joanne Elford says:

    The stomach flu. Whether it’s me or someone else, I cannot even handle the thought of it. If someone has it, I avoid them as much as possible. The most important rule in our house is to wash your hands whenever you get home and more if someone is sick.

  35. Natalie @Nat_Rea says:

    Most dreaded illness is anything that keeps the kids up at night! If I could keep them comfortable and pain-free waiting out the virus!

  36. Sure could use this as I cannot take a flu shot so anything that can get me through this season would be great

  37. I hate having a stuffed nose, so I use a vaporizer to help combat it.

  38. Lisa Marie Anctil says:

    Norwalk. If anyone has had it, they know. If you haven’t, say a silent prayer of gratitude.

  39. Would love to win this!! after all “tis the season for cold and flu “

  40. Vitamins! Since back to school our house has been non stop running noses and coughs and that includes our 8 month old. So we stock up on vitamins, orange juice and kleenex! We also LOVE the hydrasense nasal aspirator we got at Shopper’s, BEST EVER!

  41. diane king says:

    I’ve had a cold for a month now and could use this stuff.

  42. Jennifer Carter says:

    My dreaded illness is the common cold. That always knocks me on my behind and just makes you feel so bad.

  52. Would be a great win!

  53. I hate getting the stomach flu, I take gravol and sleep it off!!!!

  54. I hate colds. I’d rather have the flu because I know it’s usually short-lived. Colds seem to go on and on and on. I take lots of Vitamin C, keep hydrated and wash my hands frequently during cold season to try and keep healthy.

  55. I dread myself getting sick, because I don’t get breaks or time to rest to recover. Hubby has cancer and we have 5 kids, so no down time for me, and so far my 5 year old has been sick pretty much non stop since school started in September.

  65. Deanna Carney says:

    Sore Thoart and stuffed up nose are the worse, especially to sleep through night.

  67. I hate when the fever hits hallucination stage, hit me up with some acetaminophen so the world seems less blurred! :)

  68. My family has been going through the flu the last two weeks. I am actually home from work today because my son has the flu. So far four out of the five in our family have had the flu so I would love to win this basket to prevent further outbreaks-we even all had the flu shot. Please help.

  69. We’ve already had everyone sick this year so this will come in handy for the next time.

  70. All 3 of the kids have a horrible nasty cough that has been around for just over a week now. I’m getting worn out. Coughs get annoying because none of us get enough sleep. Humidifiers, Vicks Vap-O-Rub, and a lot of prayer!

  93. Hate the common cold. I just take vitamin C and hot water.

  94. that would be great

  95. I dread the winter because of Croup. My daughter gets it every year since she was a baby. She’s almost 8 now, so it’s technically not Croup anymore (but it sure sounds like it !) I wish she would hurry up and outgrow it !
    To combat this, I make sure we take a multi-vitamin, eat yogurt daily, drink enough fluids and try to get enough sleep !

  96. the flu!!!!tylenol

  107. Stacey Dempsey says:

    for me with my asthma it is anything repiratory, I get pnemonia really easy and is now fun at all

    • Stacey Dempsey says:

      I forgot to say how I combat it. I dont really have much if it gets in my chest I usually need antibiotics, but if I catch it early enough I drink ginger tea and take extra vitamin c and to avoid getting sick at all I am a huge believer in handwashing

  108. Lina Lalonde says:

    I dread the throwing up, sore throat, runny nose with head ackes and muscle pains.. The HORRIBLE FLU… I usually call my mommy to come and take care of me.. And she always does, with soup and cold and flu meds.. Nothing like having your mom come take care of you when you are sick :)

    I’m scared of scarlet fever right now. I hope my kids don’t get it. I didn’t even know people still got it. Apparently they do.

  114. I hate plugged sinuses. I take oil of oregano at the first sign of a cold. It really helps.

  115. Doreen Lamoureux says:

    The worst for me is the flu, esp. when you cannot stop getting sick. Yech. :( I stay in, keep warm, drinks lots of liquids , takes medication and whine a lot. :(

  117. Any sort of flu! But I’ve had this nagging cough for a week now and it’s very annoying now. I’m ready for it to go away!

  118. Oy yi yi….I dread the most the coughing that keeps you up all night, the cough that just won’t go away, the cough that makes you cross your legs (LOL). Buckley’s tablets (non liquid form) is what we have tried in the past and have had great results. Lozenges is always helpful as well – such as Fisherman’s Friends…. Oh, hope not to get sick at all !

  125. I dread getting the flu the most in the winter season. I get a flu shot, take Vitamin C and wash my hands often. I look after my elderly parents and am so afraid that they will catch the flu from me.

  126. the endless sneezing leaving your nose all raw going through boxes of tissue.

    i eat plenty of bacon and down some good scotch to combat this.

  127. The flu. We get our flu shots, always wash and sanitize our hands

  128. Absolutely hate getting a cold, sore throat and I try to take whatever cold and flu drug that will work.

  129. I have to admit I don’t tend to get sick, but the whining a husband can do….. :)

    Winter has officially arrived in our fair city. Countless days of snow, the plow has been out spreading salt/sand. Fortunate that I don’t have the flu very often.

    Oh i hate when i get bad sinus colds. I cant talk right and my head pounds from the pressure and my nose runs and i hate it.. and and and my boyfriend NEVER gets sick. EVER. gggrrrrr

  134. I tend to get sick quite a bit in the winter, and sinus problems are the worst because I’m unable to take a lot of medications due to complications/interactions with my other medications. We still have them in the house though, because when I get sick, hubby usually isn’t far behind me, and he needs them 😉

  135. Maegan Morin says:

    When I cough it affects my whole body. Its like a full body cough and it gets really really painful when I’m sick. It gets so bad that by the end of my ribs hurt so much that i cry just thinking about coughing :( So basically i just find anything I possibly can to soothe my throat and knock me out.

  136. Jeannette Laframboise says:

    So far this year (knock on wood) we have only had the common cold here and another virus that caused sore throats, strep and laryngitis. Hopefully it will not be a rough winter but children do bring home all sorts of nasty bugs from school. I would love to win this great package and be prepared. 😉 Thanks for the chance to win!

  137. Lori L. - @Miss_Elles says:

    I’m coming down with a cold as I write this, unfortunately! Since I’m 7 months pregnant (and nursing my 1 year old), I don’t like taking anything but I try to get at least 9 hours of sleep every night and drink loads of water. When I do get sick, lemon tea with ginger & honey is my friend!

  138. Brenda Witherspoon-Bedard says:

    totally had the stomach flu and I was my hands constantly at work

  139. Huguette E. says:

    I dread getting a cold this time of year. Until the leaves are covered with snow I suffer from allergies where I cough whenever I speak. If I get a cold along with this, it’s unbearable.

  140. It’s always best to have cold remedies on hand to get a quick start on any cold you get.

  155. Jennifer R says:

    I really don’t like it when my kids get sick (any kind of sick!).

  157. The never ending running nose! With 5 bodies in the house, seems like someone is forver reaching for kleenex. I buy the lotion infused ones :)

  158. Crystal Hunter says:

    being a family of 4 this would be fantastic to have

  159. Belinda McNabb says:

  165. the constant coughing is the worse.

  167. Lori Bazan says:

    Non stop coughing or stuffy nose….any flu or cold that makes you awake all night is what I dread!

  168. Elva Roberts says:

  178. Jennifer Richardson says:

    I hate bad coughs – I can’t stomach the taste of cough medicine so I just tough it out

  192. We have already had it all-cold, flu and croup. That humidifier is a pain in the rump to clean BUT I threw some marbles in and swished hot water and vinegar in around and it got 90% of the buildup off. Just a tip as the openning is too small to get a cloth or brush in. And the the marbles went in the dishwasher.

    Then my son and husband got it after the first day!
