I'm wondering if anyone has any any advice on how to avoid catching a cold while on chemo or experience of what happens if you do get one.
My 3 school-age kids keep coming home with sore throats, coughs and sniffles. I'm using every anti-bactieria/ disinfectant product available to man - hand-wash, air-freshener, surface sprays, floor cleaner etc and I've asked my kids to be careful to cover their mouths, wash their hand etc but I'm worried that my luck is going to run out at some stage.
If you get a cold while on chem how do the doctors treat it? Colds are supposed to be caused by viruses so anti-biotics aren't going to help. What happens?
