I know that you get a cold when your immune system is low, but are there any other reasons why one would get frequent colds. I have allergies, so it's hard to tell the difference, but I feel like I get a cold once a month and I really hate it because it is making it difficult for me to function. Anyone have any thoughts?
do you smoke?? Even if you don't, and you think it could be a cold-take lots of Vitamin C. Your body does not keep that vitamin it flushes it out, so you can take a good dose. My mom smokes like two a day, but takes up to 2000 mg of Vit C. (she is an RN), and she said she hasn't had a cold in two years. Keep in mind too, a cold usually lasts 7-10 days, so if it lasts less than that, it probably isn't a cold. HOpe you find out-at the very least, go to your doc.
