Antibiotics do not work on viruses, because viruses are not technically alive to begin with. The only thing on Earth which science knows can kill viruses is your immune system, and no one knows just how it works. What you can do is take vitamins to boost your immune system, and it will become much more efficient and dramatically shorten the length of time during you are sick.

Vitamins for the immune system: C, A, Zinc, and L-lysine. You may take all the C and L-lysine you want, as it is impossible to overdose on them, but only take the daily recommended dosage of A and Zinc, as written on the bottle.
