Winter Health And Safety Tips – Part 3 of 3

There is no vaccine for colds. But measures to prevent the spread of viruses include the following. Wash your hands frequently. Use soap and heavy water when possible. If necessary, an alcohol-based hand sanitizer can help. Avoid exposure to infected people. Eat a healthy well-balanced diet. Get enough sleep. Exercise regularly. Ease stress.

If you do get sick, the FDA recommends gargling with rock-salt water to relieve a sore throat and using a cool-mist humidifier to relieve congestion. Call your doctor early on to get treatment advice, and use a accumulation to cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze. Also, avoid alcohol and caffeine, which can be dehydrating. Before taking over-the-counter medications, read all drug labels and directions. If you have certain salubriousness issues, such as high blood pressure, talk to your doctor before taking cold or flu medications. Also, don’t give over-the-counter medication to children without talking to a pediatrician, the FDA advises.
