When a Cold Strikes, You'll Have These...

Is there anything more frustrating than the common cold? Seemingly springing from nowhere, the bugs that create havoc inside your immune system might only last a few days, but their symptoms can cause misery and sleepless nights for all concerned.

Whether you live alone or you have little ones under your roof, everyone should have a well-stocked anti-cold cabinet in case of the dreaded lurgy. Be prepared and you’ll be able to minimise the effects, keep calm and carry on.

Here are our top items to include in your own personalised cold-fighting kit. Have these in your home and you’ll be ready to fight the cold invasion.

Specialist Pain Relief

Often the first signs of a cough or cold is the pain. That throbbing headache. That raspy throat. You don’t have to live with achy joints and a temperature, so don’t just sit there suffering! Get on top of it early with a selection of pain relieving products that take care of the specific pain your experiencing.

Some of our top picks are:

And if you have children (or you need a little extra soothing), these Fever Cool n Soothe Pads are great for relieving the effects of a fever.

Sleep Aids

One of the worst things about having a cold is being unable to get a decent night’s sleep. Sleep is an important part of your recovery, as it’s when your body has the best chance to ward off the infection.

These products have been designed to help you feel more comfortable at night, and some will even help you drift off to sleep. Team these with a nice hot bath with candles and bath salts, and a room that’s not too hot and not too cold (Goldilocks style) and you’ll have all the ingredients for a decent night’s sleep.

Coughs and Sore Throats

A hacking cough or catarrh can be painful and irritating, especially if you’ve managed to kick your cold and your cough is just lingering on.

While coughs themselves aren’t serious and can be treated at home, remember, if your cough lasts for longer than three weeks you should book an appointment to see your doctor. A long-lasting cough can be the sign of a chest infection, bronchitis, pneumonia and other illnesses, so it’s always best to get checked out by a professional.

Now you’ve got your basics for your kit, it’s time to remember the comforting things. The balsam tissues and the soothing hand cream for your poor, cracked hands. Add a few little luxuries like Radox Muscle Therapy Bath Soak to treat yourself and you’ll be feeling right as rain in no time. Get well soon!
