Everyone is trying their best to avoid catching any type of cold or flu during the current coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic and The Doctors are weighing in a trick which some celebrities reportedly use to avoid getting sick.
You may have seen online posts claiming if you put antibiotic ointment up your nose that can help you avoid a cold or flu, especially when traveling and flying -- but is this true or even effective?
Dr. Andrew Ordon says the idea does have some merit, noting a petroleum-based antibiotic ointment may be able to create a barrier and keep some germs from entering your nasal passages. But, he stresses this will not prevent someone from getting a viral illness -- like coronavirus.
Dr. Travis Stork makes clear that colds and flu are forms of a virus, which an antibiotic ointment will not be effective against.
The best defense against a virus is washing your hands, not touching your face, avoiding other people who are sick, cleaning and disinfecting high-touch surfaces -- along with these other preventive methods.
