Common Colds:

Colds are far less serious than the flu and may be treated with over-the-counter decongestants, cough medicines or plain old rest and fluids.  If you choose to use medications, follow the instructions on the label carefully.  The best way to prevent colds is to wash your hands regularly and avoid contact with people who have colds or other upper respiratory infections.

Signs and symptoms of colds include:

  • An initial tickle in the throat
  • A runny or stuffy nose and sneezing
  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Headache
  • Mild fever
  • Mild fatigue
  • Mild muscle aches
  • Loss of appetite
  • A change in nasal discharge from watery to thick yellow or green.

“We want you to stay healthy this winter and take proper care of yourself,” said Dr. Sama.  “In most instances, these illnesses cause a few days of discomfort.  But sometimes, it can be more serious.  Emergency physicians are standing by ready to treat you if it’s necessary.”
