Why do cold symptoms reappear?

Duration and course

A cold has several phases and, if left untreated, lasts about nine days. Around 200 types of viruses can be triggers, of which rhinoviruses are responsible for an infection at around 40 percent. They are transmitted by smear or droplet infection. While with smear infection the transmission occurs through body contact or by touching objects such as door handles, the viruses with droplet infection are, so to speak, in the air. If an infected person sneezes or coughs, the viruses get into the breath of a previously healthy person - and can infect them. The so-called flu-like infection then occurs.


Day 1 - 2: The initial phase

The first cold symptoms appear just a day or two after an infection. Fatigue, a sore throat, headache and aching limbs in a mild form herald the impending illness. If you act quickly now, you can relieve the cold symptoms that will occur in the coming days with Meditonsin® Significantly alleviate the cold and shorten the course of the cold or even prevent the cold from breaking out completely. Meditonsin® is available as drops and globules.

Day 3 - 5: The acute phase

Now the symptoms appear in a significantly increased form. The nose is runny or blocked, headaches and aches and pains increase, and a sore throat makes it difficult to swallow. Elevated temperature or a slight fever may also occur. Suddenly high fever, on the other hand, suggests a “real” flu rather than a flu-like infection.

At this stage it is important to take it easy. Bed rest and adequate sleep, home remedies and light recipes, such as chicken soup, ensure greater well-being. In this phase, too, natural remedies can ensure a milder course of the cold without putting a strain on the organism.

Day 6 - 9: late phase

Headache and body aches subside, and the nose slowly clears up again. Instead, a dry, tickly cough can occur, which can develop into a stubborn cough, sometimes with thick mucus. Anyone who stays on the ball and treats the common cold in a targeted manner will soon be free from colds.

Day 10: Got over a cold ?!

The time has finally come: in the best case scenario, the symptoms have completely subsided. Now it is important not to rush anything: Even if the fatigue subsides, you should continue to take it easy in order to really cure the cold and not immediately overwhelm yourself again.

Anyone who feels really healthy and lively again should now ensure that the cold does not return anytime soon: through targeted preventive measures.
