Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have had a dry nose, a dry throat, a mild fever, and tiredness since yesterday. I recently relocated to a colder region, and I was exposed to a lot of physical activities over the weekend. Please help.

Thank you.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I can understand your concern. Based on the symptoms you described, it is more likely that you are experiencing the common cold or flu mostly viral. It is also important to note that exposure to colder temperatures and physical activity can weaken the immune system, making it easier to catch a cold or flu. Be sure to dress warmly and take breaks during physical activity to help prevent further weakening of your immune system. There is no medication specifically for treating the common cold as most colds are caused by viruses, and antibiotics only work against bacterial infections. However, there are over-the-counter (OTC) medications that can help relieve some of the symptoms of a cold, such as:

1. Cough and cold medications: These medications contain decongestants, antihistamines, and cough suppressants to help relieve congestion, sneezing, and coughing.

2. Pain relievers: Medications such as Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen can help relieve fever, headache, and body aches associated with the cold.

3. Throat lozenges or sprays: These can help soothe a sore throat and provide temporary relief from coughing.

4. Saline nasal drops or sprays: These can help relieve nasal congestion by thinning out mucus and making it easier to breathe.

Additionally, it is important to remember that the best way to prevent the spread of colds is to practice good hygiene, such as washing your hands frequently and avoiding close contact with sick individuals.

I hope this helps you.

Thank you.
