Cold and flu

Since October I've had a horrific cold every month since, it's a cold, throat like razors, chest like sandpaper, it's really getting me down! I've been eating really well loads veg and fruit, taking vitamin c and echinacea, has anyone got any other ideas as to why this is happening, i am normally fit, I've had bloods all normal,

I work in healthcare on the bank so really can't afford to go on like this!

Poor you flowers.Three ideas spring to mind:

Take multivitamins and extra vitamin D every day all year round - not expensive. They will take many weeks or months to build up to a good level in the body.

Watch you are not putting your fingers in your eyes or mouth.

Next October get a flu vaccination to protect you for the winter season. You can pay a small amount by in pharmacies or your GP surgery.
