Did you know that the average Brit will suffer between two and three colds every year?
But you won't get ill from the cold weather! The common cold is caused by a virus and can only be passed from person to person.
So it's when you come inside, where lots of people are close together that the virus gets a chance to spread!
So make sure you catch your sneezes in a tissue, then wash your hands to kill the virus.
Colds will clear up on their own but if you are suffering, over the counter remedies can ease your symptoms.
However, never give young children aspirin. Its use in the presence of a flu infection can cause Reyes syndrome, and damage your children's vital organs.
Did you know that pollution can also exacerbate your cold symptoms?
So sleep with the window closed and avoid high pollution areas.
If you need some TLC treat yourself to a bowl of chicken soup. Research has shown that it can actually alleviate your cold symptoms by inhibiting the production of white blood cells, so tuck in!
