Drinking a lot of fluids will help drain your sinuses and relieve a stuffy nose. Whether you prefer water or sports drinks, make sure you stay hydrated throughout the winter. Replace alcohol with hot drinks such as herbal tea. Drinking a bowl of a good chicken soup with a few drops of lime is another great recipe for staying flu-free and hydrated.
Look Out for Symptoms
Do you have a cold or flu? In the beginning, even a doctor may not be sure which one you have without testing. Usually, if you have only a stuffy nose, you might be dealing with the flu. On the other hand, the flu is more severe and sudden. It knocks you off your feet, and you get stuck in bed for days, feeling exhausted. Have a right medicine in your home to tackle symptoms right off the bat.
