Colds are very easily transmitted through the nose and eyes. Therefore, avoid frequent habit of holding the eyes or nose because we can not know for sure whether the things we once held free of the flu virus. The virus that has entered through the eyes gets down to the nose through the tear glands and cause colds. Frequently wash your hands, especially if it was to be around their cold sore.While a cold, cover your mouth with a handkerchief when sneezing and frequent hand washing. As much as possible avoid shaking hands with those cold sore. Research shows that colds more easily transmitted to shake hands rather than mouth contact (kissing). Therefore, the eyes and nose are the most ideal pathways for cold viruses to enter the body and not the mouth. Increase the immune system with a healthy lifestyle that are not susceptible to catching colds
