The first thing I would suggest is to see your doctor. They may be able to give you something to help you to get rid of it faster. Drink plenty of fluids and you could take some pain medication that contain acetaminophen like Tylenol.
The best way to get rid of it is have cinnamon tea and a yummy giger snack.(ginger,gingerbites ). Get lots of rest. Take fluids. Don't eat cold things. Don't take a bath. You will be better shortly!!!!!
