Question How often should I practice?

I bring this up because I wondering how often should I practice singing when I had a cold or a sore throat. I'll need some thoughts on this.

If I have just a cold, I follow my normal practice schedule, when a sore throat is present I avoid singing. I find that it will heal faster if I don't but unnecessary stress on it.

I concur on that.
If you've had a sore throat, wait until you can speak clearly. A cold, get back into your regular routine as soon as you can.

Citrus drinks ( not powerade ) help. When we'd do 3 2 1/2 hour shows a day we'd pour the juice down, it helps to keep the swelling down on your vocal chords. We'd even suck on lemon lozenges. (not menthol)

Yeah, menthol will help paralyze your vocal chords (short term effect, don't worry about taking menthol if you don't plan on singing).

Depends on the kind of cold you have. If you absolutely had to practice, shorten your routine a bit. Make sure you are drinking tons of water. Drinking lots of water in general really helps the voice with lots of things, such as elasticity and tone. (Helps my voice anyway.)
