The cold is the most common infectious disease in the human race. It is a disease of the upper respiratory system, caused by a viral infection. Symptoms include coughing, sore throat and increased mucus production (either a runny or stuffed nose). The average person suffers from 3-4 colds per year.
Although it has become a cliché, there is no cure for the common cold, but most symptoms are gone within 7-10 days, though some colds can last for weeks. People suffering from colds are extremely contagious, so prevention is the best medicine. A regular routine of hand washing and avoiding situations where infected people are likely to spread germs are two of the best ways to prevent catching a cold.
