Hi, I’m doctor Savage. I’m here to tell you
how long the common cold lasts. Now to describe what the common cold is, typically people
with the sniffles or a sore throat, that type of thing, that is the classic common cold.
Those type of common colds typically lasts approximately a week, 5 days if your immune
system is really kicking. Either way, you’re going to have to tough out those 5 or more
days. And if you’re having symptoms such as muscle aches, extreme fever, nausea, vomiting,
diarrhea, those can be signs of another type of infection such as the flu and if that’s
a concern then I would contact your primary health care provider. I’d discuss that with
them. Otherwise you just have to drink lots of fluids, gradmom’s soup would be a great
idea and just tough out those few days. I’m sure this has been informative, I’m doctor
Savage, here’s to your health.
