A cold is a mild viral infection of the nose, throat, sinuses and upper airways. It can cause a blocked nose followed by a runny nose, sneezing, a sore throat and a cough. There is no cure for a cold, antibiotics do not work against viral illnesses. Symptoms can be relieved by taking over the counter medication, such as paracetamol, and drinking plenty of fluids. You only really need to see your GP if: your symptoms persist for more than three weeks, you have a high temperature (fever), you cough up blood stained phlegm, you feel chest pain, you have breathing difficulties, you experience severe swelling of your lymph nodes (glands) in your neck and/or armpits.
