How long does a common cold congestion last?

Wait

Zinc
The zinc in coldeze may shorten the duration of a cold by a day or so. Symptomatic treatment will make you feel better. Throat lozenges for sore throat, oral pseudephedrine or topical Neosynephrine for nasal congestion, Robitussin DM for cough and tylenol for pain and discomfort when needed are what I recommend. There is no medical cure but wait 7 days and it will be gone.

Dr. Edward Rhee answered:

Normally, how long would the common cold usually last for?

Less than 5-7 days

Viral_uri
Most viral upper respiratory infection will resolve within 5-7 days. If symptoms persist beyond this length of time, or there is a worsening of symptoms after an initial improvement, it may have progressed into a bacterial infection. This is the usual pathway in the development of a sinus infection, as an example.
