Feeling under the weather? It’s important to know whether you the common cold or something more serious.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says common-cold symptoms may include:
- Sore throat.
- Sneezing and runny nose.
- Body aches.
The common cold is most likely during winter and spring, though you can get a cold at any time. Symptoms usually subside in seven-to-10 days.
Some people with a compromised immune system or respiratory problems may develop pneumonia as a complication.
