The weather is definitely cold around here. In Atlanta, that means we are seeing 40 and 50 degree temperatures. Sorry Northerners but that is chilly in Georgia. Along with that colder weather comes the flu and a cold or two. I feel as if I am still recovering from the holidays and I really have no time for a cold or even the flu. However, we often cannot avoid those cold and flu symptoms, can we? You know what I am talking about. That stuffy nose or heavy head or even that tickle in the back of your throat. When these things happen to me, I take that as a sign to find comfort and relief. Vicks Humidifiers and the other products in the Vicks Winter Wellness Care Package provide symptom relief during cold and flu season.

How to Get Relief from Cold and Flu Symptoms

1. Drink lots of water.

This seems like a no-brainer but I actually drink more water when I am sick because I tend to get dehydrated if I don't.

2. Use a misting humidifier.

Vicks cool and warm mist humidifiers are beneficial for symptom relief during sickness. In fact, The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends using a cool mist humidifier throughout the winter months to help relieve congestion and cough in children. Add VapoSteam medicated cough suppressant with a warm mist humidifier or vaporizer for even more relief from coughs and colds.

3. Monitor your temperature closely.

Fever can sometimes occur with a cold and usually is mild; with the flu it is common and higher, ranging from 100 to 102 degrees. Use Vicks SmartTemp Thermometer to get accurate readings quickly. It is compatible with a free downloadable app that makes it easy to take and track temperature readings for the whole family.

4. Get the right products.

Runny or stuffy nose? Keep Puffs Plus Lotion on hand because they are the perfect tissue for sore or runny noses. That little dab of lotion goes a long way to calm the most sensitive skin through a cold, flu, or allergies.
