one thing that worked really well for me when we had the flu in our home the last time was to rinse my nostrils with a salt water solution right on the first day when I started feeling something is a bit off. I had way less severe symptoms and was able to avoid getting a cough (which I usually do).

I share with someone who uses a thing called a Netti Pot, which is for rinsing sterile saline through the nose; she says it clears the nose of all sorts of contaminants that are breathed in, such as bugs (germs), pollen, dust, anything really. It’s also good for clearing congested nasal passages. She says it works pretty well.
