Dodgy Ears and preventing a cold

Hello All!
Did have a look to see if this topic has been discussed recently - but couldnt see any evidence ( forgive me if i am wrong!).

Last sunday evening had the misfortune on having to be offloaded halfway through my duty to a very painful right ear which, after using the old tricks of the trade would not budge.
Trundled off to A&E..when finally seen told had badly damaged my right ear..evidence of bleeding/ redness etc.
Needless to say hearing that ( from the other workable ear) I forgot who i was and burst into tears - thinking to myself thats my flying career over.

Was given some antibiotics etc and advised to see my GP later on this week. After visiting the GP this morning and both ears examined was told that the dodgy ear had healed..and looked to him 'back to normal' Now on scheduled days off followed by annual leave..and next back into work on the 4th feb!
No matter how hard i try to prevent catching a cold - i always seem to get one.
Whats your tricks of the trade in preventing catching a 'cabin crew cold'? Any tips would be gratefully received.
