How to Get Rid of a Chest Cold?

A chest cold can typically be treated at home without complications as long as you are otherwise healthy. First, drink lots and lots of fluids. This will help thin any chest mucus. Try a humidifier or steamy shower to loosen congestion too. Give your immune system a boost with extra vitamin C, and if your cough worsens, persists more than a few days or is accompanied by fever, call your doctor to rule out a more serious condition.
