The Common Cold

Friday, December 2nd, 2016

cressey_smallUnfortunately, we will all catch a cold eventually. Colds last one to two weeks, and are self-limiting, (which means they will go away on their own). Children catch more colds than adults, due to their immature immune systems. Colds are not the same as the flu. Flu symptoms are severe, and come on quickly, where as cold symptoms usually take a day or two to get our attention. There is no vaccine, or cure for the cold, since it is caused by many different types of viruses, and colds can be caught any time of the year.


The symptoms of a cold are:

* Runny nose

* Cough

* Sore throat

* Headache

* Congestion


To help with the smptoms:

* Drink more fluids. Fruit Juices, vegetable juices, and water are best.

* Get more rest. Slow down on your normal routine.

* Use a humidifier in your room to moisten nasal and sinus passages.

You can also use saline nasal spray to help.

* Tylenol or Ibuprofen over the counter may be used for the headache.

* For the sore throat, gargle with warm, salty water. To make warm,

salty water, put 1 tablespoon of table salt into an 8 ounce glass and

and add 6 ounces of warm water to the glass. Use a spoon to stir the liquid until all the salt is incorporated into the water. Then gargle. You

can gargle a few times, every hour or two, until the sore throat is gone.

* If your nose gets red and sore from blowing it, you can dab a little Vaseline on it, to sooth it.

* Call your doctor if you have a temperature greater than 104 degrees, you have a stiff neck, you have trouble breathing, or you have severe pain behind your eyes.

To avoid catching a cold, wash your hands often, for at least 45 seconds with very warm water. Make sure you cough and sneeze into your bent elbow, and avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

We, at Saltzer Medical Group, wish you health and happiness.
