Evaluation: I am assuming since you are 34years of age,your dad must be over 50years. He needs to get checked out by his physician. Even if he had a cold at first, other co-morbid conditions could predispose him to having a bacterial complication once his immunity is down. Let's get him to his doctor and make sure he gets some rest.Hope your dad feels better

Cold: Probably a minor viral infection and will probably respond to the usual OTC products. If it does not he needs to see a doctor
