Viruses thrive in cold weather.

Cold viruses are "What's Going Around" at Pediatric Associates of Dallas.

Symptoms of a cold virus include:

  • runny nose
  • sore throat
  • cough
  • aches
  • fever

The illness usually lasts between three and 14 days. Colds typically require no treatment unless a bacterial infection develops as a complication.

Common complications include sinus and ear infections.
