Oh, Drat! Another Cold

When cold season arrives, it's inevitable -- you'll end up with the sniffles and sneezes. Here are some ideas to help you on the road to recovery:

  • Take single-symptom over-the-counter medications.

  • Use a cool-mist humidifier when you sleep.

  • Get plenty of rest.

  • Wash your hands often, especially after you blow your nose or sneeze.

  • Drink 8 to 10 glasses of clear liquids -- water, fruit juice and clear soups -- every day.

  • Get plenty of sleep.

  • Eat a well-balanced diet.
