Summer colds, often referred to as "summer flu," are essentially the same as common colds, but they tend to occur during the warmer months.

While winter colds are more frequent due to increased indoor gatherings, summer colds can be just as unpleasant.

The symptoms of colds and flu can vary, including sore throat, nasal congestion, and headaches. Here are some important precautions to take when experiencing these symptoms:

*Increase Vitamin C Intake

Consume more vitamin C through oranges, lemons, and fresh fruit juices.

Herbal drinks like anise, linden tea, and thyme can soothe the respiratory system and clear sinuses.

*Enjoy Hot Soups

Drink plenty of hot soups, especially vegetable or chicken soup, to provide the body with the energy needed to fight off viruses.

*Get Plenty of Sleep

Ensure you get enough sleep and relaxation to help your body recover and strengthen its immune response.

*Monitor Body Temperature

Regularly check your body temperature to prevent overheating and dehydration.

Use cold compresses if necessary to manage fever.

*Medication and Comfort

If needed, take a fever reducer or a cough suppressant.

Stay in a moderately air-conditioned room to help your body recover.

*Consult a Doctor

If your cold persists with a high fever for more than three days without improvement, seek medical advice.
