Everyone deals with the common cold and influenza at some point, especially in the height of back-to-school and winter seasons. Are you prepared? Studies show there are things you can do to boost you and your family’s immune systems. Get a jump start on fighting these germs with the many products designed to help build immunity and ease symptoms to get you back on track.
Stock your medicine cabinet with everything you and your family need for battling a cold or the flu, from decongestants to cough drops to ear infection monitors.
Whether dealing with seasonal allergies or the common cold, nasal passages can get stuffed up, dried out and just plain painful. Get relief with nasal sprays — from saline sprays to those fortified with decongestants. Your nose will thank you.
We’ve all felt the unpleasant aches and pains that come with the common cold and flu. Whether you’re looking for day or nighttime relief, you can find a wide variety of standard and specially formulated over-the-counter medications from which to choose.
Dry eyes can lead to headaches and feeling tired. Moisturize your eyes and reduce the redness and itching that sometimes accompanies a cold or the flu. Have a small travel bottle in your purse and a multipack for the family medicine cabinet.
Running a fever can be miserable. Speed relief and get it under control fast with proven remedies like ibuprofen, aspirin, acetaminophen and naproxen sodium, available in a variety of formats from liquids to tablets.
The best offense is a good defense. Boost your body’s natural defense system with immune-supporting vitamins and herbs, such as vitamins C and zinc. And if you or a family member does get sick, remember that immune-supporting products can also help shorten the time you’re feeling under the weather.
Taking temperatures is easier and faster than ever with digital thermometers — test in your mouth, ear, underarm or even on your forehead in as short as a few seconds. Some thermometers can save previous readings so that you have a history. If you’re often on the go, consider carrying disposable thermometers in your purse for those unexpected fevers.
Whether it’s the chills or the sweats, you’ll either want to warm up your muscles or cool off your fever. There are many products designed to help, like reusable heat wraps and pads, cold packs and even warming mittens and socks.
One proven way to ease congested nasal passages and coughing is to use a humidifier. They add moisture to the air via a warm or cool mist — both work equally well for the common cold. Beyond choosing between warm mist and cool mist, keep in mind the volume of water and average run time, the type and cost of filters and the noise level while running.
Consider getting a seasonal flu shot, your main line of defense against the most common strains of seasonal flu. This is especially important for children, the elderly or if you have a compromised immune system.
