Do's and Dont's in Common Cold

Asthma
  • Handwashing is the simplest and most effective way to keep from getting rhinovirus colds.
  • Avoid touching the nose or eyes.
  • Individuals with colds should always sneeze or cough into a facial tissue, and promptly throw it away.
  • If possible, one should avoid close, prolonged exposure to persons who have colds.

Because rhinoviruses can survive up to three hours outside the nasal passages on inanimate objects and skin, cleaning environmental surfaces with a virus-killing disinfectant might help prevent spread of infection.

can a six yearold take a bath while he’s coughing?

Lilybeth_closa

All the more that you have to give bath to your 6 year old coughing child, a speedy warm bath is good enough to open skin pores, remember that the skn is the largest organ of the body, an excretory organ too. Warm bath would not only open skin pores but will also stimulate good blood circulation thus helps the condition of your coughing child because once you have good blood circulation, blood becomes active in transporting nutrients to & removing wastes from the cell. In alternative medicine particularly healing comes from inside going out, we have to clear the eliminative channels to rid off wastes because if the system is loaded with wastes it delays healing & or forms another illness by which the weak parts or organs becomes the first target..
