Cold & Flu Prevention

Yes

Colds and "the Flu" are caused by any one of hundreds of strains of viruses. They cannot be cured by antibiotics which are used for bacterial infections, not viral infections. Increasing your rest and fluid, and managing mild fevers are the best ways to get better. More helpful hints included on the Cold & Flu tabs.
