It’s that time of year, and if you’re working in an office you’re probably surrounded by coughs and colds. A nasty cold bug started doing the rounds in the talkhealth office just before Christmas with about half of the team affected; the rest thought they’d got away with it. But no! Nasty cold bug v2 has struck.


So we’ve been discussing cold and cough treatments from making sure we hand sanitise after blowing or wiping our runny noses, to one talkhealth team member who rubs a well-known mentholated topical cream on her feet at night which she says works a treat and helps her sleep!

We’re keen to know what treatments you use when you have a cold, and what works for you. Let us know by commenting below and we’ll share your tips across our social media channels.



This is the talkhealth blog spot, where we post on a wide range of health conditions, topics, issues and concerns. We post when we see something that we believe is of interest to our vistiors. Our posts do not reflect any particular view or stand point of talkhealth, but are merely to raise attention and awareness.

    I boil the kettle and fill the sink with boiling hot water. I then put a towel over my head and lean over the sink and breathe in the steam. I find it really helps to clear my sinuses AND it’s free!
