Even if you start out with a runny nose, eventually, you’ll have throat sympto
ms later on. Sounds like
a classic cold, right? When you see your docto
r, throat redness and irritation and swollen glands are noted, confirming even further that you’re in the middle of a standard up
ry infection, or the common cold. Typically, it’ll last anywhere from 3-5 days. A small minority will progress into
one of the classic complications of a common cold, such as a bronchitis or sinusitis.
