Hi Cecilia, thanks for the question.

Coughs and colds are common symptoms, especially if your immune system starts to drop and cold weather accompanies it. Several conditions can cause both of these symptoms, including:

Influenza or flu, where symptoms of cough and cold are caused by a virus that attacks the respiratory system. Flu symptoms will get worse for about 2-4 days before finally getting better Acute bronchitis, the symptoms felt are cough with greenish-yellow mucus, low-grade fever, sore throat, to shortness of breath Non-allergic rhinitis, namely inflammation and irritation of the mucous membranes inside the nose Other acute respiratory infections, which can be caused by viruses or bacteria that enter the respiratory tract and cause infection

Most coughs and colds go away on their own and only medication is needed to reduce the symptoms (especially if the cough and cold are caused by a viral infection). However, if over-the-counter cough and cold medicines do not subside, it is advisable to consult a doctor to get further treatment. The doctor will assess whether the cough you are experiencing requires further treatment or not and then provide appropriate therapy.

Some tips that can be done in the meantime:

Get enough rest, at least 7-8 hours a day Drink more water and warm drinks Inhale warm steam to relieve nasal congestion Symptoms Wash your nose with salt water Avoid exposure to secondhand smoke and quit smoking

I hope this helps.
