A cold is a mild viral infection of the nose, throat, sinuses and upper airways. It’s very common and usually clears up on its own within a week or two.

Adults have an average of two to three colds a year. Children have an average of five to six colds a year. Young children in nursery schools may average up to twelve colds per year.

The main symptoms of a cold include:

• Sore throat
• Blocked or runny nose
• Sneezing
• Cough

More severe symptoms, including a high temperature (fever), headache and aching muscles can also occur, although these tend to be associated more with flu.

WHAT TO DO:

There’s no cure for a cold, but you can look after yourself at home by,

• Resting, drinking plenty of fluids and eating healthily.
• Taking over-the-counter painkillers, such as paracetamol or ibuprofen to help with headaches, temperatures and even sore throats.
• Using decongestant sprays to relieve a blocked nose.
• Trying remedies such as gargling salt water to help with a sore throat (not suitable for children).

Many painkillers, decongestants and other medicines are available from pharmacies without a prescription. When buying any medicine please always run it by your pharmacist so you they can make sure these medicines are ok for you to take.

WHEN TO SEE YOUR GP:

You only really need to contact your GP if:

• Your symptoms persist for more than three weeks.
• Your symptoms get suddenly worse.
• You have breathing difficulties.
• You develop complications of a cold, such as chest pain or coughing up bloodstained mucus.

It might also be a good idea to speak to your Pharmacist or GP if you’re concerned about your baby or an elderly person, or if you have a long-term illness such as a lung condition. You can also phone NHS 111 for advice.

HOW TO STOP THE SPREAD OF A COLD:

You can take some simple steps to help prevent the spread of a cold. For example:

• Use your own cup, plates, cutlery and kitchen utensils.
• Don’t share towels or toys with someone who has a cold
• Wash your hands regularly, particularly before touching your nose or mouth and before handling food.
• Always sneeze and cough into tissues – this will help prevent the virus-containing droplets from your nose and mouth entering the air, where they can infect others; you should throw away used tissues immediately and wash your hands.
• Clean surfaces regularly to keep them free of germs.

Sore Throat | How To Get Rid Of A Sore Throat (2019)

Sore throat remedies. This video is on home remedies, medicine, causes and treatment to get rid of a sore throat fast.

Sore throats are very common and usually nothing to worry about. They normally get better by themselves within a week.

I’ve received a lot of messages to make a video on sore throat remedies and treatments. Which makes sense as I guess it’s that time of the year. Hope my tips help! Remain positive and keep on being amazing – Happy New Year Everyone!

SORE THROAT SYMPTOMS:
Sore throat (pharyngitis) is very common. It is usually caused by an infection in the throat. Soreness ins the throat may be the only symptom. In addition, you may also have:

• A hoarse voice.
• A mild cough.
• A high temperature (fever).
• A headache.
• A feeling of wanting to be sick (nausea).
• Tiredness.
• Swollen glands in your neck.
• Pain when you swallow.

SORE THROAT CAUSES:
Sore throats are usually caused by viruses (like cold or flu) or from smoking. Very occasionally they can be caused by bacteria.

SORE THROAT TREATMENT:
To help soothe a sore throat and shorten how long it lasts you can:

• For sore throats the first things I nearly always advise to patients is to gargle warm salty water because it’s actually really effective, inexpensive and everyone can do it at home. Gargling warm salty water helps soothe the throat and reduce inflammation. Just dissolve half a teaspoon of salt in a glass of part cooled boiled water and gargle. It’s important not to swallow the salt water which its not suitable for children.

• Have enough fluids to avoid dehydration, I know it’s tempting not to drink much especially when it’s painful to swallow. But you can quite easily become dehydrated when your not well and may have a high temperature. Becoming dehydrated can make headaches and tiredness much worse and can even slow down recovery time. So aim for 6-8 glasses a day and try to avoid drinking hot drinks as they can actually make the sore throat pain worst.

• Eat cool or soft foods
• Avoid smoking or smoky places
• Suck ice cubes, ice lollies or hard sweets – but don’t give young children anything small and hard to suck because of the risk of choking
• Rest

• Paracetamol and ibuprofen, these pain killers are great at reducing sore throat pain and also reducing a fever. To keep sore throat symptoms at a minimum it’s best to take a dose at regular intervals as directed by your pharmacist or on the medication packet.
• Medicated lozenges containing local anaesthetics like benzocaine, hexylresorcinol or an anti inflammatory like flurbiprofen. Have also shown some evidence to reduce sore throat pain by a small amount, these can be used alongside paracetamol too.

As always with all medication always read the information leaflet and speak to your pharmacist to make sure you are suitable to take it.

WHEN TO SEE YOUR DOCTOR:
See a GP if:
• Your sore throat doesn’t improve after a week
• You often get sore throats
• You’re worried about your sore throat
• You have a sore throat and a very high temperature, or you feel hot and shivery
• You have a weakened immune system – for example, because of diabetes or chemotherapy
• A severe or long-lasting sore throat could be something like strep throat (a bacterial throat infection)

Call 999 (Ambulance) if:
• You have difficulty swallowing or breathing
• You’re drooling
• You’re making a high-pitched sound as you breathe (called stridor)
• Your symptoms are severe and getting worse quickly

These symptoms can make breathing more difficult.
