I recently got over a massive cold. A little less than 48 hours ago my daughter came down with one, & now I started having symptoms again last night. How do you keep these things from boomeranging around your house?!

My daughter is only 18 months old so, as much as I may want to, it does no good to tell her to not wipe her nose on me. I try to keep up with wiping it, but that was a challenge before I got sick!

(sigh) Help!!! Thoughts?

Thanks ladies!

Between my husband my 9 year old and my 21 month I know what you mean. Keeping everyone healthy can be tricky. I just got over a cold last week. I spray every knob/ light stwitch/floors/chairs with Lysol. All remote controls arm rails cabinets with Clorox wipes. It makes a big difference but you got to do it every day.

Wishing you all good health!

I found that burning Eucalyptus in a diffuser helps a lot when we have colds since it goes into the air and kills germs. We use it all the time in the winter. As for the runny nose, the best you can do is keep wiping it.
