Don’t Fight Cold – Wipe It Away With Scotties

Scotties has been loyal to the cold and flu season by providing us all with their Scotties Care Pack filled with the truly Softest tissues ever. When the times are tough and the sniffling doesn’t seem to end, a gentle touch to the area around our nose is the best relief indeed.

Keep in mind that this company is a uniquely designed group of companies that work in synergy together to  sustainably allow their product line to thrive. People get a gentle touch with Scotties. Environment gets a gentle touch from the caring that the operations has it as its core.

The common cold is accurately named because it is indeed the most frequent infection we encounter. Thankfully Mount Auburn Hospital, a top Harvard teaching hospital and Scotties Facial Tissues are here to bring you their top 10 list of cold remedies to help alleviate your symptoms next time you feel yourself getting sick.

Cause

The common cold as explained by Stephen H. Zinner, M.D., Director of Medicine for Mount Auburn Hospital in Cambridge, MA is caused by a number of different viruses, and as such is not treatable with antibiotics (which treat infections caused by bacteria).  There is no definitive or specific treatment or cure for the common cold, which is an example of a “self-limited” infection, meaning that patients recover when the infection has run its natural course.

Treatments

Although many treatments are available, all provide relief of symptoms but they do not speed the eradication of the infecting virus.  According to Zinner, Symptom relief can be obtained by these TOP 5 measures including:

  • Humidification – add a humidifier to your home or steam a pot of water in the kitchen.
  • Steam vapor – take a hot shower and breath in the steam
  • Oral decongestants
  • Nasal saline irrigation and select nasal sprays,
  • Aspirin or acetaminophen may be useful for the body aches that may accompany the first 24 -48 hours of a cold.

Scotties Has 2ply, 3ply, and Aloe tissues that are Gentle on your Undernose Skin Tissue! Yei, play on words.

 Scotties adds their own TOP 5 measures including:

  • Sleep – make sure to give your body the rest it requires to naturally rid the body of a cold.
  • Exercise can be useful to thin out mucus and increase the activity of white blood cells – if the person feels well enough to workout.
  • Warm soup or hot tea can soothe a sore throat.
  • Vitamin C & Zinc – stock up on foods high in these immune boosting properties
  • A soft tissue like that from Scotties can help alleviate nasal blockage and congestion.

Dr. Zinner says that the usual duration of illness ranges from 5 to 10 or more days, but most people begin to feel better within 24 or 48 hours after the onset of sore throat, runny nose and sniffles. The viruses that cause colds can be spread on the hands of infected persons to other individuals, so frequent hand washing is very useful to prevent transmitting the infection to others or catching a cold from an individual sufferer.

    I usually don’t take any meds when I’m sick. But when in need, I grab something on sale. But I always get tissues with lotion in them. I like to cuddle up with a blanket and watch a “chick flick” if I can get the little ones down for a nap. As far as food when sick. I don’t get time to eat soup, especially hot, because the kids always need something. So, its lots of water. For me.

  30. I wash my hands a lot, drink a lot of fluids, and try to eat foods high in vitamins. I also take a decongestant if it gets bad enough. I regularly do a sinus rinse anyway because my sinuses are bad and allergies are terrible, but I definitely keep using it and will increase it to twice a day. I try to get more sleep, but that rarely happens.
