It's not known how much nicotine and other chemicals users inhale while "vaping" (the term for inhaling the vapors emitted by these cigarettes). According to William E. Randall, MD, medical director of The Lung Center at Lutherville Personal Physicians, part of Mercy Medical Center in Maryland, "E-cigarettes may cause short-term irritation to the airways. Although the irritation isn't unlikely to cause any serious airway damage when e-cigarettes are used for a limited period, they can be harmful if the user is hyper sensitive to them." Furthermore, he added, "The loss of [pulmonary] function for e-cigarettes seems to be considerably less than that associated with regular cigarettes."
Pill or Doc? Pill. For up to one week while you ride out a cold, take a cold medicine that contains an antihistamine (to dry out passages) and a decongestant (to open airways), says Marc Leavey, MD, an internist at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore. And don't forget to drink plenty of fluids. Though doctors may prescribe Z-Paks (six tablets of azithromycin, the most commonly prescribed antibiotic in the United States) to treat cold viruses, they're effective only against bacterial infections. "Some physicians may recommend antibiotics before they receive a patient's test results," says Leavey. "The intention is to get a jump on a smoldering infection, but in many cases, the drugs simply aren't necessary."
