 If you have caught a cold

 

If you have caught a cold

The most important thing is to get some rest. When the body has mobilised all its strength to eliminate viruses, excessive stress prolongs recovery time and increases the risk of complications. Therefore it is better to spend a day or 2 at home. It is better to consult with a general practitioner or a pharmacist before the use of any medication. If the weakness and fever don’t cease in 3 days, a physician should definitely be consulted. It is very important to drink a lot of liquids: including herbal teas, juice or even water. Children have to drink at least one and a half litres, but adults 2 to 3 litres a day. Liquids wash away the toxic substances produced by viruses and help the body to restore the lost minerals.

Cough

Coughing is a protective reflex which helps to clean the upper airways and bronchi. Hot teas and steam inhalations ease the cough and facilitate expectoration. Additionally, it is possible to use anti-cough tablets or syrup to reduce the sense of irritation and inflammation.

2/6

Sore throat

For a sore throat, it is recommended to gargle with herbal teas or warm salt-water, in addition to using lozenges or spray intended to reduce inflammation of the throat. They stop the reproduction of bacteria and relieve pain. In the case of hoarseness it is recommended to speak as little as possible, as whispering puts strain on the vocal cords as well.

Runny nose

The nose shouldn’t be blown too hard so that the infection is not spread to the middle ear. In order to stop a runny nose, nasal sprays and drops can be used. They help to reduce swelling of the nasal mucous membrane and to improve nasal breathing.

4/6

Temperature

Fever is a way the body fights viruses, therefore fever shouldn’t be reduced immediately with medications. However, if the fever reaches 39 °C medication should be taken.

Immunity

Probiotics are live microorganisms that are responsible for the protection of our body from the inside. 80% of human immunity is related to the intestinal tract, therefore it is important to keep it healthy and maintain an appropriate balance of good gut flora. Nowadays probiotics are widely used to boost the immune system during the cold and flu season, as well as in the case of unbalanced gut flora (e.g., in case of antibiotic-associated diarrhoea).
