Doctor :   Thank you for writing to us. If you are talking about the common cold, here are a few things you can do: Drink clean water and if you are in an area with bad water, drink coke Take vitamin C pills Have lots of fresh fruits and vegetables Avoid too much coffee or tea Take steam baths or inhale steam Avoid cold baths Avoid going out in cold without covering up Take a prophylactic Levocet tablet You do not have to follow all of these, doing a few of them should help greatly. Hope this helps.
