I Have A Cold.

 

I Have A Cold.

 

The common cold is associated with:

 

  • Sneezing
  • aching
  • Fever,
  • Snotty
  • Sore throat
  • Cough

 

While you may think that what you have is a simple cold it could be the Flu.

 

The cold is brought on by a virus and is transmitted by contact with the virus.  This virus is ever changing so the human body can not develop a resistance to it. On average most adults will develop a cold 3 times a year while children might get 6 or more.

 

During cold season (usually during the winter and spring) the virus is in most places but with the proper steps you can help to reduce your risk of contracting  a cold.

 

  • Wash your hands
  • Do not eat or drink after anyone
  • Stay hydrated
  • rest

 

Unfortunately, there is no treatment for a cold. Antibiotics will not help unless there is an infection associated with it. We can help to alleviate the symptoms but generally it is best to let it run its course.
