Learn More About Common Cold

Font : A-A+

More Valuable information about Common Cold

Much of the research on the transmission of the common cold has been done with rhinoviruses, which are shed in the highest concentration in nasal secretions. Studies suggest a person is most likely to transmit rhinoviruses in the second to fourth day of infection, when the amount of virus in nasal secretions is highest.

Researchers also have shown that using aspirin to treat colds increases the amount of virus shed in nasal secretions, possibly making the cold sufferer more of a hazard to others.

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..
