A cold is one of the most common viral infections.
While there is no cure, there is plenty of treatments that can help you cope with the symptoms and you will usually start feeling better within a week.

In the early stages, the flu can feel similar to the cold, with each causing a runny nose and sore throat. However, while a cold tends to build up gradually, the flu tends to hit quite suddenly.


The usual symptom of a cold are:

A blocked or runny nose

Pain in the nose and sinuses


Sore throat

Treatments and Remedies

  • Treatment of a cold is difficult as antibiotics do not work. The best remedy is to stay hydrated and rest yourself.
  • If the condition persists or gets worse seek the advice of one of our expert prescribers at Ahmeys clinic.

How long does a cold last?

Onset: 1-3 days

During this period, you will begin to notice a cold coming on. You will start to feel generally unwell, sometimes with a “fuzzy” feeling in your head and will start experiencing a blocked and runny nose. Most people will develop a cough during this period.

Onset: 4-7 days

You should start to feel better within a week, though children may take a little longer to recover.
