Hi dear, Traditional remedies might help relieve common cold discomfort, too. Drink plenty of liquids, including chicken soup. It can make you feel better. To relieve a sore throat, gargle with warm salt water, use throat sprays, and suck on ice or lozenges. Try a saltwater nasal rinse. These can help with a stuffy or runny nose. Use petroleum jelly on your nose if it’s irritated from constant blowing. Facial tissues with added lotions can help prevent, and heal, redness and soreness. Use a humidifier to help break up phlegm. Do what you can to make yourself as comfortable as possible, and rest while your body fights the cold virus.

Hi, flu is a viral infection caused by the droplet infection like cough or sneeze of an infected person. Follow these preventive measures: - avoid touching nose, eyes or mouth frequently. - cover your face while coughing or sneezing with a tissue or handkerchief and make sure people around you also follow the same. - avoid public places, crowded areas and unhygienic conditions as ther is a possibility of catching an infection. - if you are feeling sick, stay back at home and take rest so that you can avoid spreading of the disease and even you can recover fast if you take adequate rest. - maintain personnel hygiene by washing your hands before and after eating and after visiting public places.
