More than 200 different types of viruses can cause a cold. The three most frequent symptoms of a cold are nasal stufiness, sneezing, and runny nose. Throat irritation is also often involved. Adults and older children with colds generally have minimal or no fever. Infants and toddlers often run a fever in the 100 to 102 degree range. Depending on which virus is the culprit, the virus might also produce a headache, cough, postnasal drip, burning eyes, muscle aches, or a decreased appetite, but in a cold, the most prominent symptoms are in the nose.
Once you have caught a cold, the symptoms begin in one to ive days. Usually irritation in the nose or a scratchy feeling in the throat is the irst sign, followed within hours by sneezing and a watery nasal discharge. The discharge from the nose may change from clear and watery to thicker and yellowish in colour. Your nose starts to feel very stuffy and blocked up, and you might get pain in the forehead and around and behind the eyes. Catarrh produced in the nose drips down the nasal passage into the pharynx, causing a phlegmy, chesty cough as the body tries to get rid of the catarrh.
The tissues in the windpipe also get congested, so that air passes through less easily and you could become wheezy. The tissues in the nose swell up as your body continues to fight the infection. The mucus gets clogged with white blood cells, dead viruses and cells the viruses have killed. Air spaces around the nose fill up with mucus, and they push on nerves causing pain. Mucus is also produced in the pharynx, causing tissues to swell up. Usually adults do not get a high temperature; children may do. If the infection is a really nasty one adults may have a slight fever after a few days.
The entire cold is usually over all by itself in about seven days with perhaps a few lingering symptoms for another week. Within five to fourteen days, symptoms usually start to subside. It is now just a matter of time until things get back to normal. But it may be a couple of weeks until the catarrh has all gone, the coughing stops and the swollen tissues in the nose and chest shrink down again. If it lasts longer, consider another problem, such as a sinus infection or allergies. Sleep with your head on a high pillow if your nose is stuffed up at night.
You can take over the counter medicines for colds. Use steam inhalations to liquefy mucus in the nose and chest and help get rid of it. Decongestants shrink down swollen tissues in the nasal passages and allow air to flow freely through them again. They are available as nose drops and sprays and in syrup and tablet forms. Take pain relievers like ibuprofen and paracetamol for sinusitis pain. For a chesty cough use a linctus containing an expectorant, such as guiaphenesin, which loosens and helps bring up the catarrh that is causing the cough.
Some expectorant linctuses also contain a decongestant which helps you breathe easier if you are wheezy as well. Decongestants also help to dry up a runny nose, as do antihistamines and there are some cold treatments that contain both. Inhalations containing menthol, eucalyptus oil and other essential oils also help to unblock the nose. These can be used alone or inhaled in steam. There are some all-in-one medicines, which contain a combination of ingredients to treat several symptoms. They are convenient and often cheaper than buying individual products.
The proprietary formula of plant medicine is guaranteed to provide fast relief of cold and flu symptoms. Its ingredients are medically proven to provide outstanding antiviral, mucolytic effects and are highly effective in the treatment of respiratory and bronchial infections. Its certified organic medicinal plant extracts are rich in terpene oxide cineol. This compound works as a strong antiviral and expectorant agent. It also contains the strongest known mucolytics found in plant medicine, including elecampane with its uncommonly high levels of bornyl acetate.
Plant medicine for cold and flu is doctor recommended and proven safe for use. It is a breakthrough antiviral treatment for those suffering from colds and flu. This is a novel immune-response modifier which induces stimulation of white blood cells to rid the body of viral infections. The main pharmacological effects of plant medicine are its anti-viral and immunostimulative functions. It delivers outstanding antioxidant activity from the high concentration of polyphenolic compounds and medicinal plant extracts. To learn more, please go to
