Coughs and colds are the most common illnesses in the UK, with adults suffering an average of 2-3 and children up to eight episodes a year. They are most common in the autumn and winter, peaking between November and March and present an issue for both children and parents in terms of time of school and childcare problems. There is no cure for the common cold, the symptoms of which are usually caused by viral infections, meaning that antibiotics are not effective in treating them. The most effective way of helping to prevent coughs and colds is to support the immune system and friendly bacteria are increasingly being shown to help with this.
