Pharmacies

Pharmacies sell medicinal, health and toiletry items such as painkillers for muscles and headaches, nutritional supplements, first aid supplies, toothpaste and shampoo, and health food. For severe colds and flus, it is best to get prescription medications directly from doctors at the hospitals as they have the most current medicines and can prescribe an appropriate dose. Pharmacies only have products best used for relieving cold symptoms rather than attacking the cold directly.
