In between sniffling and blowing my nose brought to me by my colds, I had in front of me a life insurance quote that may be a winner.
Anyway, since I just came from a wicked cold, I’m sharing with you a few tips so you can get over the sniffles or possibly avoid them altogether.
It is important to treat cold symptoms quickly, and that is… at the first sign of a cold. Take an antihistamine plus an anti-inflammatory painkiller such as ibuprofen or naproxen. This can be done every twelve hours until the symptoms go away. As we know,the anti-histamine will block sneezing and reduces nasal discharge while the painkiller relieves sore throat, headache and possibly cough.
And yes, sipping you favorite hot liquid is a must. It may not be chicken soup, in fact, you can have something spicy or acidic to relieve coughing.
Bundling up is still your main defense against the sniffles during the colder months. Apart form that, we should not forget to keep washing our hands. And as simple as it may sound, it is wise to carry your own pen. A pen is a little vector for germs.
