We all know the dreadful feeling of waking up, being exhausted with a fever or a runny nose, and experiencing aches all over. When that happens you know cold/flu season has arrived. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has published more information about the flu and what you can do to protect or treat yourself if you have the flu.
While rest, sleep, and lots of liquids are generally recommended with cold/flu symptoms, there are other remedies that could speed up recovery. FSAstore’s Cold & Allergy section offers warm steam vaporizers, saline solution, nasal sprays, and medicines such as cough drops, tablets and more.
You can also arm yourself with a flu shot – it’s FSA eligible as it’s a preventive measure.
