    Even better than alcohol!

    Your bacitracin tip is brilliant, but trust me on the xclear stuff… it will truly change your life. And it’s (relatively) cheap.

    PS thanks for doing these, Dan. You’re the road warrior’s road warrior.

    • I second @Seth’s Xlear recommendation! Using it for almost ten years, since the birth of my kiddo – helped keep even preschooler disease vector’s offerings from infecting the whole family. 😉

    Greetings from London. Thanks for the tips Dan. Seth, love to see you out there recommending things. I have some of the spray now coming to the house. See both of you out there on the road.

  4. I totally thought the cure was going to be chocolate given the Ghiradelli image in the screen still. Damn.

    Thank you for sharing this, but I wish I would have seen it a week ago. I just got over pneumonia, went on a flight to North Carolina (from Chicago), and I am back to square one (stuffed up, sinus congestion, cough, and an ear infection). Looking forward to reading through all of your traveling tips and sharing them with others.

    OR you could use a q-tip to apply the neosporin!

    An altogether less invasive 🙂 option but along the same line of thinking, that I have been using for years with similarly positive outcomes are the antibacterial/antiseptic Strepsil lozenge (

    Enjoy without the need to invade your nasal passages 🙂
