Infection of the upper respiratory tract by rhinoviruses is called common cold. The symptoms include runny nose, sore throat, cough, congestion, headache, body ache, sneezing, fever, and weakness. This virus can spread by contact with a sick person or by sharing utensils or other objects. Children are at risk of catching a cold in the school. Some of the complications of a cold are ear infections, asthma, sinusitis, pneumonia, strep throat, and bronchitis. As such, there is no cure for the common cold. As it is a viral infection, antibiotics will not help. Drink plenty of fluid, keep yourself hydrated, and use painkillers and decongestants for temporary relief.
