    How to keep your head and face warm?

    Frequently susceptible to a cold and sneezing fits? Get expert tips on how to keep the head and face warm to avoid this recurring problem.

    My friend is susceptible to cold and gets frequent sneezing because of it. Now since he lost his hair on the head due to heredity he stays bald by trimming them but because of it he is facing coldness again. This is causing him cold all the time and sneezing too. Is there any way to keep the head warm apart from wearing a woolen cap? Any kind of lotion or skin warming gel would be great.
