Family Nose Best
As winter approaches, it will not be a surprise for a member of your family to catch a cold – especially if you have little ones! With over 200 common cold viruses and thousands of flu viruses around, it is more than likely that at least one member of your family will fall ill at some point over the winter period.
So, with the NHS actively discouraging patients from visiting their GP with minor winter ailments, where do we turn when someone in our family falls victim to the dreaded winter cold?
Our latest report shows that the living room has become the waiting room of the future, with the majority of people now using traditional home remedies to treat cold symptoms, with 45% following advice that has been passed down to them from their parents.
