Get Ready for Flu Season with Chloraseptic Sore Throat Relief

Just in time for the holiday season, it's also cold and flu season. Yay! And if you're on the fence about the flu shot, there are tried-and-true drugstore remedies like Chloraseptic®, the #1 sore throat relief, that we count on every year for relief from nagging symptoms. 




Chloraseptic® lozenges and sprays provide fast-acting relief for sore throats and mouth pain. But the rest is literally up to you. Here are a few tips and tricks on how to stay healthy and germ free during the holidays from Chloraseptic® expert Maria M. Mantione, Associate Clinical Professor at St. John’s University College of Pharmacy and Health Services.

  • Stay home: The holidays mean parties and gatherings – and many people attend even when they are sick. Do your best to avoid others who are sick – and if you have a cold, stay home.
  • Get some fresh air: Ventilate as best you can if the weather allows it. During the winter months, we are more likely to stay indoors. When weather permits, open up your windows and let some fresh air in.
  • Be prepared: Have Chloraseptic® throat lozenges on hand when you travel. The air on airplanes is very dry – which can cause a sore, scratchy throat. Chloraseptic® lozenges are a great way to keep your throat feeling great.
  • Rest up: Many people drink more alcohol around the holidays – and that can worsen the quality of your sleep. Being well rested is a great way to prevent colds from making you sick. And try not to over indulge in alcoholic beverages.
  • Sanitize everything: Wash your hands and wipe down surfaces that many people touch – like keyboards, doorknobs, telephones and elevator buttons. Use hand sanitizer – but only if you can’t wash your hands with soap and water (the only way to get rid of all types of viruses).

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

It's the end of an era. Conway discount stores are closing . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to New York City, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and white checkered pants with a matching lime green
