Can I Eat Orange And Drink Tropicana Juices During Cold And Fever??

I am having a cold, runny nose, and fever at particular periods like evening, night, and morning. Can I have fruits like oranges or drinks like tropicana juices during this period? Will it worsen my current situation?

Answer

Hi BEM,

I know you posted this several months ago, but I wanted to let you know that it is perfectly fine to eat fruits and to drink juices during a cold or flu. Often, these are recommended because of the purported benefits of vitamin C. Also, staying hydrated when you are ill is extremely important.

If the symptoms persist for more than seven days, you should consult a doctor because you could have something else going on (such as allergies).

Hope you are well!
