If the meds don't do it there is an alternative. Colloidal silver, micron sized particles of metallic silver in a colloidal suspension in distilled water, have been shown to be toxic to both bacteria and viruses but harmless to mammalian tissue. Putting a colloidal silver solution in a nebulizer and inhaling it produces a surfact application on the lung tissue and kills the bugs on contact, tipping the balance in favor of the immune system. Before antibiotics this was the primary treatment for acute ear infections, though in those days preperation of the silver water was more difficult and often resulted in significant contamination with ionic silver, which can cause agiria, a condition that turns the skin blue. In the USA one can usually find small quantities of silver water for sale in health food stores - at a price.

Or you can ignore this as pure quackery.  

As the Dutch said while fighting the Spanish: "It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere."
