Can I take a cold without medicine?
Expert: Symptomatic treatment

The common cold is not ordinary. It may prolong the course of treatment without treatment, and may also cause other serious complications, especially severe complications such as myocarditis and pneumonia caused by the cold. If not treated in time, it may be life-threatening.

Some clinical extreme cases often appear in some young and strong patients.

In addition, for the elderly and frail, patients with basic diseases, once a cold is dealt with, it may cause heart disease, heart failure or even acute attack of nephritis.

  You can take the medicine as soon as you have symptoms. Early treatment can quickly relieve symptoms such as nasal congestion, runny nose, and sneezing. If you have a cold, you can “press” it quickly.

If you wait until the symptoms are obvious, or if you take the drug for a day or two, the effect will be worse, and the course of the cold may not change significantly.

Once the symptoms have resolved, the drug can be discontinued.
