How To Treat A Cold | How To Cure Common Cold | Best Medicine For A Cold, Fever & Sore Throat OTC Pharmacy Medicine

A cold is a mild viral infection of the nose, throat, sinuses and upper airways. It's very common and usually clears up on its own within a week or two.

Adults have an average of two to three colds a year. Children have an average of five to six colds a year. Young children in nursery schools may average up to twelve colds per year.

The main symptoms of a cold include:

• Sore throat
• Blocked or runny nose
• Sneezing
• Cough

More severe symptoms, including a high temperature (fever), headache and aching muscles can also occur, although these tend to be associated more with flu.

WHAT TO DO:

There's no cure for a cold, but you can look after yourself at home by,

• Resting, drinking plenty of fluids and eating healthily.
• Taking over-the-counter painkillers, such as paracetamol or ibuprofen to help with headaches, temperatures and even sore throats.
• Using decongestant sprays to relieve a blocked nose.
• Trying remedies such as gargling salt water to help with a sore throat (not suitable for children).

Many painkillers, decongestants and other medicines are available from pharmacies without a prescription. When buying any medicine please always run it by your pharmacist so you they can make sure these medicines are ok for you to take.

WHEN TO SEE YOUR GP:

You only really need to contact your GP if:

• Your symptoms persist for more than three weeks.
• Your symptoms get suddenly worse.
• You have breathing difficulties.
• You develop complications of a cold, such as chest pain or coughing up bloodstained mucus.

It might also be a good idea to speak to your Pharmacist or GP if you're concerned about your baby or an elderly person, or if you have a long-term illness such as a lung condition. You can also phone NHS 111 for advice.

HOW TO STOP THE SPREAD OF A COLD:

You can take some simple steps to help prevent the spread of a cold. For example:

• Use your own cup, plates, cutlery and kitchen utensils.
• Don't share towels or toys with someone who has a cold
• Wash your hands regularly, particularly before touching your nose or mouth and before handling food.
• Always sneeze and cough into tissues – this will help prevent the virus-containing droplets from your nose and mouth entering the air, where they can infect others; you should throw away used tissues immediately and wash your hands.
• Clean surfaces regularly to keep them free of germs.
