Diagnosis of Common Cold

The common cold can be mistaken for hay fever (allergy) or bacterial disease such as a sinus infection or throat infection. Fever and more severe symptoms, especially muscle aches and cough, suggest the flu. If the disease comes on quickly, is not too severe and resolves in one to two weeks, it is usually the common cold. Allergies usually recur and can last for entire seasons.

Bacterial sinus infections are usually limited to the nose and usually will not resolve unless antibiotics are given. A stuffy nose, sore throat, and sneezing are usual signs of a cold. The clinical appearance of the patient is sufficient to diagnose the condition.

can a six yearold take a bath while he’s coughing?

All the more that you have to give bath to your 6 year old coughing child, a speedy warm bath is good enough to open skin pores, remember that the skn is the largest organ of the body, an excretory organ too. Warm bath would not only open skin pores but will also stimulate good blood circulation thus helps the condition of your coughing child because once you have good blood circulation, blood becomes active in transporting nutrients to & removing wastes from the cell. In alternative medicine particularly healing comes from inside going out, we have to clear the eliminative channels to rid off wastes because if the system is loaded with wastes it delays healing & or forms another illness by which the weak parts or organs becomes the first target..
