    Health experts in Hyderabad have warned people about the proper use of over-the-counter remedies for fever and cough as the number of cold and cough cases in the city has been rising. This increase in cases is mainly due to fluctuating temperatures caused by the impact of Cyclone Michaung in neighboring Andhra Pradesh. Doctors are cautioning parents to consult a doctor instead of relying on over-the-counter remedies.

    According to doctors, when there is a change in the season, the count of allergens in the environment also increases, with up to nearly 200 viruses in the air. These viruses are responsible for making people sick, especially children, during the winter months. Colder temperatures, increased indoor activities, and closer proximity in shared spaces contribute to the spread of contagious diseases.

    The most common virus causing colds is the human rhinovirus (HRV), which flourishes in cooler weather like spring and winter. The Influenza virus, which causes flu, spreads more easily in cold and dry air. Weakened immune systems due to inadequate nutrition can make children more susceptible to infections.

    To protect children’s health during winter, parents should ensure they are up-to-date on flu and pneumonia shots. A balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains can support a strong immune system. Getting enough sleep is also important for recharging the body.
