Common Cold (Cold) is an upper respiratory tract infection, which is mostly caused by rhinoviruses. It can be transmitted from one person to another via respiratory droplets or a contact with infected secretions. It heals on its own unless complications develop, but it may cause the loss of work / school days.

Symptoms include sneezing, runny nose, nasal congestion, headache, fatigue, sore throat, fever, and cough.

The treatment of cold is directed at symptomatic relief. Painkillers/antipyretics, throat spray/mouthwash, medications relieving nasal congestion may serve this purpose. Bedrest is recommended, as well. Antibiotics are not recommended unless a bacterial infection develops over the viral infection.
