The common cold is caught 2 to 3 times per year, but how can you know if what you think is a cold is actually something worse?
The Doctors are joined by family physician Dr. Heather Hawthorne from Doctor On Demand to discuss signs of something possibly more serious.
Dr. Hawthorne tells plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon to be mindful of these types of issues when you have a cold:
- A rebound illness or a double sickening episode is usually a sign of a super or secondary type of infection
- Persistent fevers or high fevers that are over 102 degrees or fevers lasting longer than 3 days are concerning and could be a sign of a bacterial infection
She also says the common cold will usually last 5 to 6 days, but possibly longer if you are not taking care of yourself. If it goes on longer than 7 to 10 days, it’s best to see your doctor. “When in doubt, check it out,” she says.
