Ka-ching is right, Now every minor cold or virus will have average people going omg omg the sky is falling.

Then most people don't how to handle themselves when they have a cold including self sanatation ie clean hands etc.

But most fight mother natures way of getting rid of a cold/flu bug. Especially coughs. I was told by a doctor your body is trying to expell the crap in your lungs which means it must be runny-eewwweeee. That means everytime you take cough medicine/cough suppresant you can prolong the recovery process. You literally have to get that bug out of you/your lungs. Expectorants are best.

Same for runny noses, what do most people do besides decongestants, they sniff it right back into their body-yuck. This is why they make tissues people.

If your bodily fluids are extra runny, stay home don't contaminate other with your fluid residue and/or droplets. Steam and salt water spray for the nose can be just as effective.

Long story short, stay home, REST, blow your nose, breathe moist air/steam etc and drink fluids. Unless you can't function/survive sometimes it best to take a day or two of discomfort rather than lose a week or two dumping otc crap into your body all day long.

BIG: drink fluids, prefably juices and/or clear liquids as to not upset your stomach.
