illustration of man with upper respiratory infection


If you’ve got a runny nose, an aching throat, and a cough that won’t quit, you can probably blame it on an upper respiratory infection (URI). URIs are one of the most common reasons people visit the doctor, especially in fall and winter. Educate yourself on the illness, and learn ways to battle the miserable symptoms associated with it.

What is an upper respiratory infection?

An upper respiratory infection is a term used to describe a contagious infection of the upper respiratory tract (the nose, throat, airways, sinuses, and ears). Most URIs are viral illnesses, though some are caused by bacteria. The common cold, sinusitis, and bronchitis all types of upper respiratory infections.

What are the symptoms of an upper respiratory infection, and how long will they last?

Symptoms of an upper respiratory infection are caused by inflammation of the mucous membranes in your upper respiratory tract. They include runny nose, sneezing, nasal congestion, cough, and mucus production. Fever, headache, fatigue, and wheezing are also common.

How do you treat an upper respiratory infection?

If a bacteria is causing your upper respiratory infection, a doctor can prescribe antibiotics to treat it. However, antibiotics are ineffective for viral URIs. In these instances, treatment is focused on alleviating symptoms.

If your symptoms are severe or long lasting, it’s important to seek medical help. Secondary bacterial infections may develop, and require treatment. Head to the doctor ASAP if you experience:

  • A fever greater than 101 F for more than two days

    One thing is the fact one of the most prevalent incentives for applying your credit cards is a cash-back or maybe rebate offer. Generally, you’ll get 1-5 back upon various buying. Depending on the cards, you may get 1 back on most expenses, and 5 back again on acquisitions made using convenience stores, filling stations, grocery stores as well as ‘member merchants’.
