Even if you start out with a runny nose, eventually, you’ll have throat
er on. Sounds like a classic cold, right? When
you see your doctor, throat
redness and irritat
ion and swollen glands are noted, confirming even further that
you’re in the middle of a standard upper respirat
ory infection, or the common cold. Typically, it’ll last anywhere from 3-5 days. A small minority will progress into one of the classic complicat
ions of a common cold, such as a bronchitis or sinusitis.
