IT’S cold and flu sea-
son, but do you know how
to recognise the difference
Both colds and flu
are spread by viruses,
which can’t be treated
by antibiotics, but can be
avoided or reduced by
using common sense and
pharmacist, Viet Nguyen,
said the most important
way to stop the spread of
viruses is to wash your
“That’s the top prior-
ity, along with blowing
your nose on a tissue and
disposing of it properly,
and wearing a mask which
we have here at the phar-
macy,” Viet said.
Symptoms of cold
and flu are similar, but flu
symptoms become more
severe, with muscle aches
“Of course there’s the
‘man flu’ too, which is
always worse,” laughed
Flu shots can help with
flu prevention, and this is
recommended for anyone,
but especially for people
aged over 70, asthmatics,
people working in the
health industry, and peo-
ple with other health is-
sues which could deplete
their immune systems.
To boost your im-
munity, increase your
vitamin C intake and try
echinacea, but this is not
suitable for asthmatics.
“If you are suffering
from a cold or flu, make
sure you rest, maintain
your fluids, and take pain
relief or anti-inflammato-
ry medicine if required.”
If you have a blocked
nose, ask the pharmacy
staff about which nasal
spray is best suited for
your symptoms, as there
are different types.
If you have a cough,
there is a range of differ-
ent medications to help,
including syrups, sup-
pressants and lozenges.
“The lifespan of colds
and flu is about two weeks
maximum, so if symp-
toms continue longer than
this, or deteriorate, you
should visit your GP.”
Saturday morning will
mark Viet’s last day at
Balaklava, as he is head-
ing back to Adelaide
before departing for an
overseas holiday – so call
in and say thankyou and
n BALAKLAVA Chemmart’s Sia Mackay with
a varity of cold and flu medications.

Sports stars entertain – Mallala football and netball clubs combined for a great
night at the club recently. Former Hawthorn premiership player and Gold Coast footballer
Campbell Brown and Adelaide Thunderbirds netball coach Jane Woodlands-Thompson took
the junior football and netball players for training – and the club then held a Sportperson’s
night About 130 people attended the evening, on Friday, July 24. Everyone enjoyed the
entertaining stories from both Campbell and Jane.
ANOTHER Saturday – and another beautiful
day for bowling!
Mallala Bowling Club recently hosted 64 bowlers
for a friendly game of winter fours, sponsored by
Virginia and Districts Community Bank, operating
under the umbrella of Bendigo Bank.
Twelve teams played two games of 12 ends.
Mallala’s favourite personality, Keith MacDonald,
known as ‘Macca,’ and his team of Ian Stuart, John
Kieboom and Graham Forrest, took the winning
honours for the day, with a score of 96 points.
Runner up on 95 points, was the team from Two
Wells, comprising Colin Hall, Ian Brown and Darryl
Hall, skippered by ‘Bucky’ Launer.
The next winter fours is on Saturday,August 23, at
11.30am for a noon start, so come along and have a go.
Teams of four are welcome to enter, and sets of
bowls are available for those who don’t have their
own. Casual dress and flat soled shoes are essential
for a day on the green.
