Flu numbers may be on the decline, but the common cold is packing a serious punch in the midstate.

There's no cure for the cold, but according to the Mayo Clinic, there are things in your kitchen that can help ease your symptoms.

It suggests drinking plenty of fluids and eating chicken noodle soup. That can help loosen congestion and prevent dehydration.
