Self-medication for cold and flu seasons

The winter season is approaching and that is when colds and flu attack the body. This is the time of year when all sorts of medications, tablets, and remedies are used.

Colds and the flu usually begin with symptoms of a sore body and a sore throat. There is nothing worse than a sore body and a stuffy nose. That’s why stocking up on all the right self-medication products is a good thing. Not everyone can afford to go to expensive doctors all the time. Therefore, buying self-medication for home use is sometimes best.

For babies, you will find that there is a mild flu ointment option that is not as harsh on their little bodies. There is a range of ointments like Vicks Vapo Rub, Puma Bum, Woods, and Lennons. Some of these ointment brands also have a range of cough syrups available; some are sugar-free and alcohol-free, and made especially for babies, as they are more sensitive to medications. Panado can be used for pain and fever, and is available in tablet or syrup form. Scotts is also a good product to stock up on as it not only helps children with their persistent cough, but it also helps them grow. Baby’s Own tablets are also recommended for sick babies and also help them with teething.
