Tips for How to Shorten a Cold
Learning how to stop a cold from spreading is one approach on how to shorten a cold. The best way to prevent a cold from spreading from yourself to others is to wash your hands frequently and thoroughly. One of the main ways that colds spread is when cold sufferers cough or sneeze, and then, with trace amounts of cold virus on their hands, touch various objects and surfaces. When other people later touch these same surfaces, they can get the cold virus. Washing your hands often, especially after bouts of sneezing or coughing, will give your family and friends a better chance to stay healthy.
