Home Remedies For Common Cold

A common cold may seem like a mundane nuisance, but it sure can cause severe discomfort and make you feel really ill. A cold can set in owing to several reasons. The change of seasons and the intrusion of some bacteria can lead to its onset. You may develop cold after getting wet in the rain, and also in the winters. Whatever the root cause is, cold can be quite cumbersome. It is often accompanied by fever, headache, sore throat, cough, a bland taste in mouth, stuffy nose, and lethargy.
