Cold and flu is common in winter, and it peaks between the months of January and March. A nasty cold and flu is often one of the worst conditions that hamper our daily lives.
Cold & Flu Causes & Symptoms
A cold or flu infection occurs when the airborne viruses enter the nasal tract and trigger a reaction of the body’s immune system. The symptoms of cold and flu include fever, headache, sore throat, cough, and aching joints and muscles, as well as stuffy and runny nose and sneezing.
The common cold can be caused by more than 200 viruses, however, usually it is the Rhinovirus or Corona virus which cause more than 60% of the common cold incidents. Rhinovirus enters your body mostly through your nose and some through the mouth.
Seasonal flu is generally caused by either influenza A or B viruses; the common symptoms of the flu are fever, tiredness, aches and pains. Influenza B usually causes a milder illness, and is most seen in children.
Why Kids & Mums Suffer Most from Cold & Flu
Kids and mums suffer the most from colds. Children get colds 5 to 6 times per year probably because of close contact with other children during the day and a lower immune system, while adults get colds 2 to 3 times per year. On average, women between the ages of 20 and 30 get more colds than men, possibly because of their regular close proximity to children.
Remedies for Cold & Flu
Cold and flu remedies and treatments are necessary to combat the problem. But you need to find the right preventive measure to make sure you are well protected from the irritating symptoms of the diseases.
Most people react to colds by reaching for medicines or other home remedies after the fact. Medicines may cause drowsiness or interfere with other medications. Common colds are caused by viruses, and antibiotics kill bacteria, not viruses, therefore antibiotics mostly do not work on common colds. And of course, taking too much medicine could lead to some long term side effects.
Others choose to treat symptoms, like sinus congestion, with natural remedies to loosen or remove mucus including: inhaling steam, taking a hot shower, drinking peppermint tea, or irrigation.
