Common colds are viral infections of the nose, throat and sinuses.
This is very common as it is spread very easily between people. Symptoms can include fever, chills, runny nose, stuffy nose, sneezing, coughing, headache and sore throat. These symptoms are very common to other illnesses that may need to be treated with an antibiotic so it is very important to be checked by a provider to determine what condition you have. Many people recover from a common cold easily with the use of over the counter medications including natural remedies.
