While taking medicines for curing cold, the following factors must be taken into account
1) Cold is the starting point and also ending point of fever. Both cold and fever medications are same.
2) There are several medicines which do not help to reduce cold and fever. They must be detected by noting their response after consumption. If they are not effective, they must be avoided. Some medicines i have found to be ineffective are terramycin, tetracycline.
3) Select a good cold medicine or pill. a good medicine must reduce the cold and fever within one hour. Otherwise, it must be substituted by another medicine. So, continous checking is necessary. Otherwise the cold or fever will persist for many days and people will have to spend more money and also suffer more from fever.
4) During cold and fever, running nose is common. People get irritated when this occurs. They wipe off the water with a hand kerchief. This action is helpful, because it helps in letting the harmful bacteria out of the body. This behaviour by our body must be understood by us.So people should also do another thing in private. They should bend down their head and just allow as much water to come out of the nose as possible. No forceful breathing should be done. so, our body's reactions to cold must also be noticed and out that the amplicillin and amoxycillin work best to overcome cold and fever. Paracetamol tablets also work fine.
