You might wake up one day and notice that you’re coughing, your nose is running, your voice is hoarse, and your throat hurts. Today, cough and colds remain to be the most common illness among people. Medicine for cough and colds are continuously in high demand as well.
It is the most frequently occurring viral infection globally. Moreover, it is the major reason for hospital checkups and missed days from work and school. Every year, adults get about 2-3 colds, and children catch it more often.
Cough and colds can last for approximately a week. However, some symptoms can last for several weeks. Despite the symptoms being viewed only as irritating ailments, one must not overlook them. These may indicate an upcoming high fever or other more serious conditions such as bacterial infections or influenza.
Coughing spells can be caused by either of these two: 1) congestion of phlegm in the chest and throat that is too thick to be expelled or 2) irritants such as dirt particles and pollutants that are inhaled via the nose or throat.
On the other hand, colds are caused by a build-up of mucus in the nose as a defense mechanism to get rid of a virus or bacteria on the onset.
If you find yourself with these symptoms, it may be time to buy medicine for cough and colds.
