The common cold

APPOMATTOX, VA (WWBT) -

There is no cure- so you just have to learn how to deal with it.

We show you how to handle the common cold in this week's Neighborhood Healthwatch.

Dr. John Clay is on the case of the cold.

Symptoms include mild fever, fatigue, cough, nasal congestion, sore throat and headaches.

Tylenol, nasal saline sprays, decongestants, cough suppressants and rest can be helpful.

See your doctor if there has been a development of chest pain, shortness of breath, wheezing or if the symptoms last for more than a week.
