Prevention of Cold There are many preventive measures that can help prevent one from catching a cold. There is some evidence that Vitamin C may help prevent colds. To reduce the spread of colds, a person with cold should cover his or her mouth when sneezing or coughing, wash his or her hands frequently and avoid touching the eyes, nose, and mouth. Other people should avoid close contact with a person who has a cold and anything they have touched, and wash their hands frequently.
