Common Cold: Overview

The common cold refers to any number of viral infections of the nose and throat. Typical symptoms are all too well-known: cough, runny nose, blocked nose, fever, sore throat, and other symptoms. Fortunately, most cases of the common cold are harmless, but it is still prudent to watch for some dangerous complications. And some other more serious conditions, such as flu, can be mistaken for the common cold (read about: misdiagnosis of the common cold).
