Neighbourhood Lifestyle Desk: It may be peak summer but you could still be suffering from common cough and cold. Seasonal change is harsh on the body, and irrespective of the temperature, you may be suffering from a runny nose, fever, cough and congestion all year round. Being a viral infection, common cold is a self-limiting condition that lasts for 5-7 days. If it is caused by bacteria, a treatment of antibiotics may also be prescribed. It can also be triggered by an allergic reaction.

Boil water with ginger, raw turmeric stems, tulsi (basil), adulsa leaves, lemongrass and pepper. Add honey or sugar for taste after straining. Drink it when warm.
