Viral: This viral upper respiratory tract infection usually runs its course in a week. At this time treat it with resting, drinking adequate fluids, using decongestant nasal spray as needed and Tylenol for aches,gargle or lozenges. If symptoms persist or worsen rather than improve gradually or if increased chest congestion,fever,chest pain or wheezing, see MD.
