URI: Uri, also sometimes referred to as a "cold" - is a stubborn medical dilemma for which prescription medicines have little to offer. The object of therapy is symptomatic relief with analgesics like tylenol (acetaminophen) or advil and decongestants like robitussin. Chicken soup and Vicks vaporub have been used with some success. Rest and sympathy help. Time is the only treatment that offers good relief.
