A lil late for the post but its better then nothing right? Though its finally in and back in action for good progress since, I was making some changes to the site which caused a lil more time and got behind schedule since was constantly making changes to it. Though it turned out good and there is still more configuration and features to be putting in the next coming months.
Back to the blog,
How will you be coping the winter that is coming up, since, I have been having cold days here and the temperature is lowering down it getting chilly. As well the most time of the year that people will get sick during these times. The climate is changing and ragweed pollen is the most coming about in the Fall months allergies from here and there. Yet, what comes to mind how can we tell from a cold to an allergy cold. Here I will break it down for you.
Usually my best tip, is by the color of the mucus that you can tell if it is a cold or allergy cold. If it is clear mucous then its an allergy cold. An if it yellow mucus its usually a cold. Though sometimes it varies and depends so, it is not always accurate. The mucus of course that comes from can be from coughing up the phlegm and/or blowing from your nose.
Other tips, that I found across from other sources and personal experience:
Since, I had an allergy cold from awhile back during October which had to be during the midterms yet I did alright thankfully though it was not easy. I was developing symptoms before it actually hit me since I have asthma and allergies. I would have my asthma easing me every now and then when I went to school. I would catch the shortness of breath, a little bit of coughing which was not much a bother since it was mild. I just had that emptiness of air inside me coming home. The college of school I go to has a lot of different tress though it is a very nice school to study in there can be some downside which when the allergies come up. I was being affected by the trees and the ragweed pollen that was floating around the college. Then there was the cold that was running about campus hearing the coughing and the sniffling. Yet, students like myself had to go to college because then we would miss important lectures and exams that cannot be made up unless for emergencies. Though, with the cold around and the pollen around I was exposed to then it had finally hit me.
Coming home, from college I felt some what miserable and kept sneezing every now and then. Then the next day I developed a small sore throat which I immediately treat myself from getting worse by doing the salt and warm water to gargle with. As well getting tea with lemon and honey to not have such and impact. Decided to take the an histamine of Zyrtec which eased down my sore throat and sneezing. The next few days after that, I was miserable, even though I did not felt like I wanted to do anything I had to keep going and get myself better. Since, I had to be exposed by college it made it worse coming home. I felt miserable I kept coughing, sneezing, my eyes were watery, my nose was stuffy and my face hurt. With my face hurting meant that I had sinuses as well. All these symptoms, I had the humidifier, an histamine and tea. Also with rest which made me get better much quicker. It was a few days of the cold allergy but after getting over it I developed losing my voice every now and then. Yet, it was diminishing.
What I did. May be different from what you do. Though these are tips that can help.
~I taken the Zyrtec for almost nearly a week.
~Having the humidifier for 3 days only.
~Gargle salt and warm water mix together in the mornings
~Drinking Tea in morning and night for a few days (Always include honey helps soothe your symptoms)
~Taking the prescribed Nasal spray for allergies and easing down my sinuses which I take every time I go to college since I do not want to progress my symptoms again.
~As well my prescribed inhaler for my asthma taken by what the prescription says
~Include water in drinking liquids it really does help your best liquid to drain out whats in your system
~Also rest rest rest for a speedy recovery
What do you do when you hit allergies or cold allergy?
