|Cold Self-management Program|
DRINK HOT LIQUIDS: Sipping hot chicken or turkey broth is helpful for the common cold.
REMAIN ACTIVE: Unless you have a fever moving around and getting moderate exercise will help you feel better by loosening up built-up mucus and fluids. Lying around will usually only make you feel worse.
PRACTIVE PROPER SANITARY METHODS: Flush your dirty tissues since they contain the cold virus and may help make your cold worse or reinfect you after you've recovered. Also wash your hands often and avoid shaking hands or coming in to close contacts with others as much as possible so that you won't infect them.
AVOID ASPIRIN IN CHILDREN: Do not give aspirin or aspirin-containing products to children with symptoms of any viral infection, including the common cold.
