Remember though, that your doctor is the appropriate person to recommend a treatment. Do not take drugs "by ear", to avoid possible complications.

1. Drink plenty of liquids. Symptoms of colds and flu can lead to dehydration, so try to drink plenty of liquids. Water, fruit or vegetable juices, soups, teas, all of these can help in fight with the cold. Is recommended as much as possible to avoid beverages containing caffeine, because they have a diuretic effect. Herbal teas sweetened with a little honey can help you get rid of the neck pain.
