While summer isn't technically over, it feels like it is long gone. The days are getting shorter, there aren't as many invites for summer bbqs, and I have a cold.

No matter what, whenever the season starts to change, I get sick. Without fail. Between spring and summer, summer and fall, fall and winter, I get a cold. I never get the flu, I just get a runny nose, scratchy throat and watery eyes. I always try to tell myself it's allergies, but the way people run away from like I'm carrying the plague means I look like a cold sufferer to them.

I've tried all the tricks to not catch a cold: wash my hands incessantly, drink tons of orange juice, take lots of vitamins, and get lots of rest, but nothing works. Do you know of any safeguards against colds? Any remedies for a cold once it has already been caught? Any tips would be much appreciated.

Russian Federation

I'd give my leg to know the answer on that. I keep getting sick when seasons change all the time. My remedy is staying at home for a couple of days with a chicken soup, a pair of warm socks and some cold remedy.
