Did you ever consider that the cold you are having is more serious than that?
We all know the signs of the common cold. It comes with coughing, sneezing, a runny nose, and congestion. It is definitely not pleasant, and it can sometimes take you out of the game for a few days, but no ordinary cold should last more than four days. And while specialists and doctors have talked about how vitamins can help you strengthen your immune system against them, we can all still get them from time to time.
What turns a cold into something more serious is a series of additional symptoms and situations that can point to something more serious that you cannot just treat with tea, rest, and good hydration. To make sure that you do not end up having problems later, keep an eye out for these symptoms, and if your supposed cold has been lasting for more than six days, make an appointment with your doctor!
