Unfortunately, we will all catch a cold eventually. Colds last one to two weeks, and are self-limiting, (which means they will go away on their own). Children catch more colds than adults, due to their immature immune systems. Colds are not the same as the flu. Flu symptoms are severe, and come on quickly, where as cold symptoms usually take a day or two to get our attention. There is no vaccine, or cure for the cold, since it is caused by many different types of viruses, and colds can be caught any time of the year.
The symptoms of a cold are:
- Runny nose
- Sore throat
