How To Treat A Cold | How To Cure Common Cold | Best Medicine For A Cold And Fever And Sore Throat

It’s winter again and that means colds
in fact adults average two to three a year you may even know someone that has a cold right now so please like & share this video so it can help them feel better okay so the common cold is a mild viral infection of the nose, throat, sinuses and upper airways the main symptoms include sore throat,
blocked or runny nose a slight temperature, coughing and sneezing it usually goes on its own within a week or two the bad news is there’s no cure for a cold so definitely don’t go to your GP for
antibiotics because they’re not going to work but the good news is, it is
self-limiting so it will go on its own with plenty of rest, fluids and eating healthy but here are some options that I recommend to help you feel better for sore throats I always recommend gargling warm salty water It’s really effective at soothing the throat and it also helps reduce inflammation It’s reasonably inexpensive and everyone can do it at home just dissolve half a teaspoon of salt in a glass part-cooled boiled water and gargle, it’s important not to swallow the salt water so it may not be suitable for children for headaches temperatures and even sore throats you can take over the counter painkillers like paracetamol and ibuprofen and these can both be taken together lastly for adults with a blocked nose decongestant nasal sprays are effective but remember if you use it for more than three consecutive days it can cause something called “rebound congestion” and that means your blocked nose will basically get worse when buying any medicines please always run it by your pharmacist so they can make sure it’s ok for you to take hopefully you won’t need to see a GP but here’s when you need to make an appointment when your symptoms persist for more than 3 weeks you have breathing difficulties your symptoms suddenly get worse you develop complications of a cold like chest pains or coughing blood stained mucus it may also be a good idea
to speak to your GP or someone if it concerns your baby an elderly person or
someone with long-term medical conditions we’ve run out of time again but please see the link below in the description about how to stop the cold from spreading taking a few simple steps can make a big difference hey guys thanks for watching if you

  1. I feel like I can’t really swallow or I can’t eat.. it’s a weird feeling that can’t be explained

  2. For adults:
    – eat healthy (chicken noodle soup with vegetables usually does the trick)
    – drink plenty of fluids (except pop with caffeine (not including ginger ale, 7-up & Sprite) & no alcohol.
    – multiple trips to the bathroom
    – plenty of rest
    – If feeling better try watching or listening to something that makes you laugh (Looney Tunes for example)
    – If your symptoms get worse, go see a professional doctor for help.

  3. Could someone please help me with this?
    Whenever I usually get sick I have a scratchy throat first
    Followed by sometimes blocked/runny nose
    Then it ends with cough then it finally goes away
    Usually I don’t go to the doctor for this since it’s usually self treatable( Bacterial or virus)
    But I hate the symptoms that come with it, especially the runny and scratchy throat
    Is it alright to take mucinex? Or is that an antibiotic and i shouldn’t be taking it?
    Thank you!
