Understanding common cold

Common colds are infections of the upper respiratory tract. Symptoms include sneezing, coughing, sore throat, a blocked or runny nose.

Common cold is often accompanied by a temporarily weakened immune system. On one hand, this may allow viruses to attack the body, on the other hand it is also a frequent cause of such an infection. There are more than 200 different viruses that can cause common colds.

Secondary bacterial infection may sometimes follow, which aggravate symptoms and prolong the illness. Hence doctors sometimes prescribe antibiotics to overcome the bacteria.

Factors that might increase the susceptibility of getting infection by cold viruses include psychological stress and allergic diseases that affect the first protective barrier. i.e. the epithelial cell lining of the nose and throat.

Factors that weaken the immune system

  • Stress on job
  • Strenuous travel
  • Lack of sleep
  • Excessive exercising
  • Important exams
  • Anxiety

Complications of common colds

During an episode of a common cold, the viral infection may further weaken the immune system, allowing facultatively pathogenic bacteria that are normally present on the surface of the respiratory tract to invade the body hence producing a symptomatic co-infection.

Other common complications are sinus infections or middle ear infections (especially in children)

If you have underlying asthma or chronic bronchitis, your usually mild symptoms of these conditions may be worsened and prolonged for many weeks even after your cold stopped.
