Can paracetamol treat colds?

1 Answer:

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

Basically paracetamol is a heat-reducing and anti-pain medication. Paracetamol is not a cold medicine and also has no anticholinergic effect so it cannot be used to treat colds.


Colds themselves can be caused by many possibilities, including infections (can be viral or bacterial infections), allergies, irritation, or other things such as air that is too cold and dry, certain foods, certain drugs, hormonal changes, etc. To find out the right treatment for a cold, you must know the exact cause of the cold. Paracetamol can help overcome fever and malaise (such as muscle aches, joint pain, headaches, etc.) that sometimes accompany colds, but cannot overcome the symptoms of colds themselves.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
