About Colds
Upper respiratory infections (colds) affect the sinuses, nasal passages, pharynx, larynx, and trachea. Examples of these infections include rhinitis (inflammation of nasal cavity), sinusitis (sinus infection), and pharyngitis (inflammation of the pharynx, uvula, and tonsils). These illnesses represent one of the most common reasons for doctor visits and missed work/school days. Most infections are caused by viruses, not bacteria so antibiotics are rarely appropriate.

Symptoms
• cough
• stuffy nose
• runny nose
• sneezing
• fever
• scratchy or sore throat
• congestion

Treatment
Upper respiratory tract infections are typically treated with rest and fluids although a WellNow visit may help you manage symptoms and address any complicating factors. It is important to see a medical professional if symptoms last more than a couple of weeks, symptoms worsen, you have difficulty breathing, swallowing is impaired, or you have recurrent infections.
