Doctor :   There is no cure for the common cold but managing symptoms is the best that can be done for the cold, as there is no specific treatment. Antibiotics will not cure colds, as they are caused by viruses and not bacteria. A person with a cold should drink plenty of fluids and take rest. Cold remedies are almost as common as the common cold, and many are nearly as ancient. Some cold remedies include: User :   but took 1 month for it to go
Doctor :   k
User :   include????
Doctor :   Water and other fluids - drinking plenty of liquids can help. Water, juice, clear broth or warm lemon water with honey helps loosen congestion and prevents dehydration. Avoid alcohol, coffee and caffeinated sodas, which make dehydration worse.
Doctor :   Salt water - a saltwater gargle â?? 1/2 teaspoon salt in a glass of warm water â?? can temporarily relieve a sore or scratchy throat
User :   ok
User :   ohhh
User :   ok

Doctor :   It shows you have moved away from the chat, so I close the window. Please log in again if you need further medical advice
