What Type Of Pathogen Causes The Common Cold
Can the common cold sometimes cause amenorrhea? Can an illness such as a common cold ever cause amenorrhea? .
Not exactly: Some causes of amenorrhea (loss of menstrual periods) can include severe weight loss and illness, so I suppose it is distantly possible. That being said, the nature of the common cold is that it should not make one sick enough for long enough to produce amenorrhea. Some women have rather irregular cycles which are exquisitely sensitive to physical or emotional stress and in that case possibly. ...Read more

Probiotics foods like yogert and antioxidants foods like tea, berries, dark chocolate can't hurt. ...Read more

Some have asthma and don't like the cold, irritating for them. The disease common cold is from an infection of a virus not from ice cream. So if you like it, join the group. Have fun. ...Read more
Is it "normal" to have common cold or allergies every two to three months? How do you prevent it? Will I need an allergy test to find the cause?
Perhaps but: The average adults have about 3 colds a year and thus your problem may not be unusual until the duration of the cold exceeds 2-3 weeks each time and the occurrence is seasonal. If you have a "cold" every 2 months however, then the chance for allergy rises. The presence of itching and lack of a fever would point more to allergy and allergy tests would be the answer. ...Read more
