COLDS
Also see: FLU

- Each year approx. 9 of 10 people get at least one cold

Children:
____ Contact pediatrician if child cries and/or screams a lot
____ Don't give aspirin to children - may cause Reye's Syndrome

Prevention of common cold:
- More common in fall and winter because people tend to gather inside more
____ Use one hand (e.g. right) for handling items (e.g. door knobs, hand rails) and shaking hands, and, use other hand when need to touch your mouth, nose, eyes, etc. or cover your nose or mouth when sneezing or coughing
____ Wash your hands frequently, scrubbing all of hands (e.g., between fingers, under fingernails) with soap for at least 30 seconds and repeating, then use a paper towel to open the door out of a public restroom, especially after sneezing or coughing and before touching other people or items other people might touch - germs can stay alive on surfaces for almost a day
____ Don't share drinking containers and eating utensils
____ Eat garlic - might help avoid a cold
____ Avoid public areas, especially when a lot of people have colds

Treatment of common cold:
____ Drink plenty of fluids
____ Eat small quantities of food
____ Consider taking a decongestant - will make you more comfortable
____ Consider using a humidifier while sleeping
____ Consider using zinc lozenges - some believe they help reduce the severity and duration of symptoms
____ Avoid multi-symptom medications (just treat your most significant symptom) - multi-symptom medications may unnecessarily increase your risk of drowsiness, raised blood pressure, etc. and they cost more

To avoid spreading your cold to someone else:
____ Wash your hands frequently, scrubbing all of hands (e.g., between fingers, under fingernails) with soap for at least 30 seconds and repeating, then use a paper towel to open the door out of a public restroom, especially after sneezing or coughing and before touching other people or items other people might touch - germs can stay alive on surfaces for almost a day
____ Cough/sneeze into a disposable tissue (not a hankerchief) and discard immediately after one use
____ Don't share drinking containers and eating utensils
____ Avoid public places, e.g., don't go to work, school, etc. while you're contagious

If you have a stuffy nose:
____ Consider using a nasal decongestant spray (or a nasal decongestant, e.g., Sudafed)

____ Consider not using any medication (just use tissues)

If symptoms persist:
____ See a doctor
