Hello, Anon! Thank you for writing today.

A common cold can be caused by many different types of viruses. The condition is usually harmless and symptoms usually resolve fully within a week or so. Symptoms include a runny nose, sneezing, and congestion. High fever or severe symptoms are reasons to see a doctor, especially in children. Home remedies (like chicken soup) and over-the-counter products (for stuffiness) can help control symptoms - such as using a decongestant or antihistamine. If you are unsure about what to get, your pharmacist can recommend something. Drink plenty of liquids. Using a humidifier can help increase air moisture, especially in your bedroom.
