Pete from Pharmasave Eden Rise has you covered this winter season with his facts and top tips on how to beat the common cold!
Have a read of the fact and tip sheet below…
– The common cold is a virus – so antibiotics are not usually used, nor do they help reduce the duration of the cold.
-A healthy immune system will help reduce cold severity. Plenty of rest (at least 7 hours sleep at night), keeping your body hydrated and maintaining a balanced diet are all contributors in creating a healthy immune system.
-If you do get a cold – there are plenty of over the counter preparations that can control your cold symptoms (aches, pains, fever, runny nose, cough) which will help you get on with your day.
-Vitamins/Herb combinations can help your immune system can aid in keeping the virus from taking hold and can assist with beating it quicker.
Some of the most commonly used are:
– Garlic – natural antiviral/antibacterial
– Echinacea – immune system booster and symptom reliever
– Horseradish – Natural decongestant
– Vitamin C – antioxidant and immune system booster
– Olive Leaf extract – full of antioxidants and helps with coughs and sore throats
– Zinc – helps the immune system work properly
-If you feel as though your diet is not balanced and/or lacking nutrients, try any simple Multivitamin which can help with replacing nutrients you may be missing out on – All of course help in keeping the body healthy and preventing cold and flu from taking hold.
Pete also explains that treating colds in children may require more specific treatment.
– Medicines such as Demazin and Dimetapp are not suitable for children under 6 years old. In place of such medications, a vaporiser/humidifier can be quite useful for relief in young children particularly with infants and they can last 10-14 hours on a single tank of water!
– If your child is running a fever, Panadol and Nurofen are the standard treatments to bring temperature down.
– Saline nasal sprays are not “medicated” but can be extremely useful with helping an infant or toddler clear their nose.
But lastly, before purchasing any medications make sure you consult with a Pharmacist and/or Pharmacy staff, as often some natural or counter preparations as mentioned above may not be suitable for everyone and can have the potential to affect prescribed medicines.
For all your medicinal needs or if you’d like to chat further with a Pharmacist, make sure you head down to see Pete at Pharmasave Eden Rise!
