Welcome to XXXXXXX

Common cold is caused by virus. So there is no effective medication effective till date to treat common cold. Anti-Histamine drugs they only relieves nasal stuffiness and runny nose to some extent. So dont worry about it,cold is not a serious problem.

If you want try OTC available Vapocaps and inhale vapours,you will get symptomatic relief.

Clavam 625 is an antibiotic,can be useful if you have sore throat or sinusitis.
