"Dawn Drewes was absolutely amazing. This was my first telehealth visit ever and I felt I got the same level of care I would get in person. Good health providers can be difficult to find and Dawn Drewes is one of the good ones. Her personality really puts you at ease and she communicates beautifully. Everything we discussed was clear and concise but she is open to any questions you have if need be. I will be a loyal patient going forward."

About Cold

Back to the top

A cold is a viral infection that infects the upper respiratory system (the nose and throat). There are over 200 types of viruses that can cause a cold, and the infection is highly contagious. Most healthy people will experience at least one cold every year. Infection is more common in the winter as people are near each other indoors more often.

Common symptoms of a cold include:
  • Stuffy or runny nose
  • Sneezing
  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Headache
  • Fever
  • Nasal congestion
  • Body aches

Variations of the rhinovirus are the most common causes of a cold. These viruses can infect you by entering your body through your eyes, nose, or mouth. Adults rarely experience fever symptoms when dealing with a common cold. In fact, one of the surest ways to tell the difference between a cold or a flu infection is the presence of fever symptoms.

Common colds are generally very mild and require little to no medical attention. However, severe infections can lead to complications such as:

  • Asthma
  • Ear infections
  • Sinus infections
  • Acute bronchitis (chest cold)

If you are experiencing the symptoms of a cold, avoid going out in public. The infection is easily spread through airborne droplets and on surfaces. Practice good hygiene and rest until your symptoms have passed.
