Ask the Experts
Cold is a viral infectious disease of the upper respiratory tract primarily affecting the nose and in other cases throat, sinuses, and voice box.
Though many virus strains can be considered to be the reason, rhinoviruses stand out among the lot. It is seen to manifest more during cold weather conditions, hence the name. Common symptoms may include coughing, running nose, sneezing, nasal congestion, sore throat, headache, and fever. These one or many symptoms, depending on the severity may last from a few days to weeks.
This infection is airborne. It also spreads through touching contaminated surfaces, saliva, or skin-to-skin contact. You tend to catch a cold easily when your immune system has become weakened. Though similar in symptoms to influenza, in the latter the symptoms are more severe.
Common cold though self-limiting is generally harmless in nature usually subsides within a few weeks. Proper sanitation in the form of regular hand washing, using face masks in the presence of infected people go a long way in the prevention of this disease.
As mentioned earlier, cold generally improves within a week or two, but in more severe cases ear infections are also observed. If symptoms persist longer than usual, it is imperative to consult a doctor to rule out severe infections like pneumonia or influenza.
