The title of this article is 'Cure for the Common Cold'.
It is in fact NOT a cure, but a treatment at the first
symptoms that strongly cut colds down in size and
length. In fact in many cases, it cuts symptoms

This nasal spray is due out on the market in a month or so.


Nasal spray 'will stop colds from developing'
By Roger Highfield, Science Editor

A nasal spray that is claimed to be the first clinically proven treatment to
stop a common cold from fully developing goes on sale next month.

Procter & Gamble said its Vicks First Defence can both reduce the chance
of developing a full-blown cold and the severity of symptoms.

After initial infection by a cold virus, sufferers become aware of a cold
developing, marked by a scratchy throat, sneezing and feeling unwell.

Research shows this incubation period, which can last two days before full-
blown symptoms develop, offers an opportunity to inhibit the virus before it
takes hold.

My uncle went through reconstructive surgery on his sinuses. He had to rince his sinuses with saline water several times a day. Yes it sounds gross. It was gross, but what he found out is if he is starting to feel a cold come on he rinces is sinuses with saline water and voila no more cold. Hopefully this nasal spray will work, because that would be a lot less gross than rincing out sinuses.

It makes a lot of sense. I am looking forward to giving it a try.
My daughter catches cold, then broncitus, then pneumonia
every November and then again every April. She has asthma
and her lungs are weak. This product could save us a lot of
worry and heartache!
