I think it is season now. Some of my staffs are having it too. But my germs not spread by them though. It is from my small girl. But she is not as serious as me now. My throat is very itchy, so doctor prescribes me some herb type of sweets instead of normal syrup. After few days, throat no longer itchy but lot of phlegm now. I refuse to take any medicine now, use take fisherman sweet or Hacks whenever I feel I need it. I hope to beat the germ by myself, and of course need to drink lot of fluid to flush away the germs.
