Many doctors and practices are utilizing technology to see patients during this time of social distancing.

Almost everybody suffers from the common cold once or twice a year, especially during seasonal changes, and children are more susceptible. The common cold is a highly contagious disease characterized by inflammation of the mucous membrane of nose, pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi, etc. Adults normally recover quickly, but viral pneumonia may be disastrous to children. If the common cold is ignored, it may lead to severe complications of the upper respiratory tract.


A filterable virus causes the common cold. Any person who comes into contact with another person having a cold may also get it. Other causes of the common cold may include sudden changes in temperature, improper food, obstructions of the nose, fatigue, exposure to cold, lack of sleep, and dampness. The virus is transmitted by direct contact, by droplet infection or through things like handkerchief, towel, book, notebook, pens, or any other object that might be exchanged. It can last anywhere from a few hours to 2 or 3 days. Sometimes it lasts for seven days.


Rest is advisable to give relief from body aches and headaches. The common cold generally lasts for a regular course of 1-2 weeks, and the immune system can cure the problem, although early treatment shortens the length of the cold.
