Common Cold
The common cold is a collections of symptoms usually caused by a viral infection. Lots of viruses can take hold inside your nose, mouth, throat, or lungs, and cause cold symptoms.

Related Symptoms
  • Sniffling and runny nose
  • Coughing
  • Chest congestion
  • Sneezing
  • Sore Throat
  • In children, the common cold can also cause a fever.  But adults do not usually get a fever when they have a cold
If you are a teenager or an adult, you can try cough and cold medicines that you can get without a prescription. These medicines might help with your symptoms. But they won't cure your cold, or help you get well faster.
If you decide to try nonprescription cold medicines, be sure to follow the directions on the label. Do not combine 2 or more medicines that have acetaminophen in them. If you take too much acetaminophen, the drug can damage your liver. Also, if you have a heart condition, or you take prescription medicines, ask your pharmacist if it is safe to take the cold medicine you have in mind.
A healthcare provider may prescribe medications for symptoms but there is no medication that will cure a cold.
