Rainy days do not bring only lots of water but also common diseases. It is always wise to prevent these before these illnesses bring us problems, specially to kids. For me, I always use the natural way on preventing common colds and coughs. I always make sure that I have the foods that act as preventive measure specially for little ones. Check out here the food that can prevent colds and coughs: http://elvirasroundabout.blogspot.com/2010/07/prevent-colds-and-coughs-on-rainy-days.html

HAHA!in opposite,i like rainy days,also i can't catch the cold.I think it's up to individual athletic qualities.if you do some protection step when rain coming! But if you want to have good body,you must spend some times on taking exercise and eat more fruit.people with poor health must take action to strengthening the body's immunity instead of eat food and vitamin when rain coming! I will spend times to browes the web you supplied

you are lucky only very few people won't get at least cold during rainy days, specially for kids. for me i easily feel cold so i always wrap myself and my kids with thick clothes during rainy days.

Well,as usual prevention is the best. Make sure to take daily enough dosage of vitamins C that our body needed and proper diet of fruits and vegetable. Specially the kids, their resistance was not yet properly develop.Although we do our best to protect them,we cannot guard them 24 hours specially when they are attending their school. There are juices made of vegetable with a good taste of natural flavor and a good booster of immune system. I can post its brand here, but i am sure many of this in the market

I normally take precautions. Drink hot water. I used to do it at all seasons. Try do not get wet especially rains directly on the head. If got wet, wipe the water immediately and have bath with normal water. If not possible, dry up as much possible. While sleeping reduce the speed of the fans. If affected, especially for children, I do not go any allopathic medicines, just take few black pepper, dried ginger and garlic altogether and boil for some time. Add honey to it and drink with little warm. The cough and cold will vanish immediately. This is the only treatment I have observed from my childhood. Luckily, for the last 2-3 years, I am not affected with cough and cold. Regards, Thank-s

i do not know about the black pepper, i might try it if my kids get colds. i agree though on getting wet specially by rain, it's a sure thing to take bath if not then the next day colds will be present definitely.

Never forget to take Vitamin C and lots of juices. Avoid drinking anything cold. Like you, I say yes to the natural ways on preventing common colds.

I agree with you. I use natural way to prevent me and my little brother from cold. But I also dress him with many clothes because he is only 2 years old and it is very easy to catch a cold. I it's the same for me, I I am just like him. If i do not dress, I will catch a cold.

I dont usually catch a cold even on rainy days and I am sad to tell that I just caught a cold yesterday. I seldom catch cold cause I felt like I am resistant to this kind of virus. I think that's the reason why I caught a cold cause I didnt do anything to avoid it.
