URI: Common cold symptoms should get better within a week or 10 days. Symptoms longer than 7-10 days merit a doctor visit. If symptoms get progressively worse fast, you have a fever or any serious problems like difficulty breathing, chest pain, difficulty or pain with swallowing, you should see a local doctor soon.
