About the Common Cold

  • Antibiotics will not cure the Common Cold. That’s why doctors won’t prescribe them.
  • Fever & headaches are rare in the Common Cold. That’s more a sign you’re suffering from influenza (the flu). However they can signal a cold in infants and very small children.
  • Cold, rain and damp clothing don’t induce a “cold.” You’re much more likely to contract it by simply shaking hands. Wash your hands frequently and avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Air travel isn’t hazardous if you have a Common Cold—but it may be to your fellow passengers! Avoid air travel if you have a cold or upper respiratory infection.
  • Antibacterial soap is no more effective a mechanism against the Common Cold than just plain old soap and water. What’s more important is that you wash your hands repeatedly.
