Colds are widespread
Every one of us probably had a cold. The distressing symptoms can last for days and severely limit us. When you have a cold, the best place to be is in bed. Adults catch an average of two colds per year. Children fall ill an average of five times a year. We are particularly likely to catch a cold in spring, fall and winter. The wet and cold weather weakens our immune system and a cold is easy to catch.
Especially when the weather gets colder again and we are not thinking about our thick winter jacket, we often catch a cold. A cold can be fought quickly and reliably with various remedies. In our Pharmasana online store you will find a wide selection of cold remedies that contribute to a quick recovery.
Viruses are the causative agents
So what causes a cold? In most cases, a cold is caused by viruses. The viruses attack the mucous membrane of the nose and throat. In the further course, the respiratory tract is also affected. Our immune system becomes active. This manifests itself, for example, in the typical cold.
The viruses of a cold can be transmitted very easily and quickly. The infection with cold viruses occurs via droplet infection. The risk of infection is particularly high in kindergartens, schools, public transport and in the office. The viruses are coughed up and inhaled by healthy persons. Infection is also possible via the hands and mucous membranes. Many people cough into their hands and a short time later shake the hand of another person. This person in turn touches their own nose with their hand and becomes infected. The easy infection is also the reason why we catch a cold relatively often. However, the right medication can quickly relieve the symptoms of a cold.
Fighting a cold
If you have a cold, you need one thing above all: rest. On average, a cold lasts for five days but the symptoms can still appear days later. Tiredness and fatigue are common "late effects" of a cold. Symptoms during and after a cold can be controlled with various cold remedies. Cold remedies with zinc or vitamin C strengthen the immune system and relieve cold symptoms.
