In brief: Runny nose, sneezing

The common cold viruses cause upper respiratory tract infections typically that can present with runny nose, sneezing, occasionally with fever, nasal congestion, and cough.
Symptoms usually last 7 to 10 days but can last as long as 14 days. Extra rest, fluids, and symptomtaic treatment are usually all that is required. Antibiotics will not help colds.
