Colds, Sore Throat and Flu

Most of these are caused by a virus, for which there is no cure. You can help your body to fight the infection by taking Aspirin or Paracetamol regularly (as directed on the bottle), plenty of fluids to drink and resting.  A sore throat can be relieved by gargling with soluble aspirin or

Paracetamol - Children can safely be given Paracetamol liquid (Calpol or Disprol), but do ask your Pharmacist if you are worried.
