It may be spring, but this hasn’t hindered the cold and flu from running amok! It seems like my household has been plagued with everything in the past season. Luckily, our assortment from Scotties has been there on stand-by for the inevitable: the sneezes and sniffles. Scotties has always been my go-to brand since their tissues are superbly soft and hypo-allergenic, which is ideal for those who have sensitive skin. In addition to Scotties sending a care package, they have recently launched CoughColdCare.com. CoughColdCare.com helps decipher cold vs. flu symptoms, track the flu in your area, provides advice on protecting yourself, and helps you learn about key products to add to your cough and cold survival kit.
