THE CAUSE OF SORE THROATS AND COUGHS

The sore throat is one of the most common health complaints. Classic symptoms include irritation, a ‘burning sensation’ at the back of the throat and pain when swallowing.

Most sore throats are caused by viral infections such as the cold or flu. Breathing polluted air, being exposed to pollens, moulds or pet dander as well as unhealthy lifestyle choices are also leading causes.

What to do when you have a cold or flu
DRINK MORE WATER

Drinking more water promotes body metabolism. The influenza virus will also leave the body much faster. Sore throats and coughs will also improve and we will recover from cold or influenza much sooner.

REST MORE

People who have influenza may get tired and develop body pains more easily. Therefore, they should not work too hard or engage in strenuous physical exercises as this may lead to over-exhaustion and a weaker immunity.

TAKE VITAMIN C PILLS

Vitamin C can boost our immunity and increase the body’s ability for anti-oxidation. Taking Vitamin C pills can safeguard us against colds and influenza, as well as strengthen the antibodies inside our body to drive away the virus.

AVOID OILY AND GREASY FOOD
AVOID OILY AND GREASY FOOD

When suffering from a cold or influenza, we should avoid oily and greasy food because exogenous pathogenic factors may enter our internal organs and make our illness more serious.

BE EXTRA CAREFUL WHEN TAKING A BATH OR SHOWER
BE EXTRA CAREFUL WHEN TAKING A BATH OR SHOWER

Hot baths lead to blood vessels dilating and the body temperature dropping, which can make us susceptible to the common cold or flu. Also, if hair is wet, avoid cold wind or air-conditioned rooms as wet hair can also lead to catching a cold.
