Should I see my doctor for a cold?


  1. The average cold lasts five to seven days. If you develop a cough, a high fever (greater than 101.5 degrees) or facial pain, it could be more than a cold, and you should see your doctor.

    Viruses cause colds. There is no treatment for viruses. Antibiotics will not help. In most cases, any OTC (over the counter) medication that helps to treat the symptoms is fine. For example, decongestants or antihistamines can often provide symptomatic relief.
