Don’t go out, you’ll catch a cold….
Come winter and mothers start alerting their kids about a common winter problem called Common Cold.
What is Common Cold?
Simply put, it is a medical condition of very mild nature but to understand it better, you need to go through the symptoms like stuffed nose, sore throat and mild fever.
How you treat Common Cold?
If you want, you can go to a doctor and get prescription drugs. Or you can buy an over-the-counter medicine from a nearby drugstore or you can let your body clear the congestion with home remedies.
Here’re popular home remedies for Common Cold
The treatment starts with coughing that clears the breathing passage of thick mucus. Subsequently, the body increases its temperature called “fever” to kill germs. Similarly, the body goes on treating the stuffed nose.
Endurance is the key to success in the battle with Common Cold. To increase your endurance power, you can do the following things.
Should I see a doctor?
If your endurance power is low like in the case of toddlers, seniors or people suffering from chronic ailments like diabetes and hypertension, you can visit your doctor after waiting for two days. Common Cold doesn’t require medicine but people with low endurance power need medical support to fight problems like acute bronchitis that could make breathing difficult.
