Children from the age of 2 to 4 years are affected by the common cold most frequently. This is because the child's immune system is still very immature at this time (completely develops till the age of 10). Besides, this is the time babies start to attend the kindergarten. There are groups of twenty to thirty children, that's why the viral concentration indoors is very high during the periods of illness, and the risk of infection increases. Negative emotions also contribute to the disease. If your baby doesn't like to go to the kindergarten, he/she will definitely be ill more often than other children, because the negativity lowers body's defenses.

The course of the common cold can vary significantly during this age. It may be only a slight runny nose, which is very fast passing, especially if you don't treat it. However, a baby can have not only a runny nose and cough, but also a fever. The hardest usually are the first two days. Generally, the illness begins with a sore throat, then comes rhinitis. Babies usually have a runny nose for two weeks, but for older children over the age of one and a half year: about a week. If they last longer, the family doctor should be asked for advice, since there is a risk of the paranasal sinuses inflammation and other illness.

Commonly, the cough at the beginning is dry, it may be fitful – child can't expectorate, but the throat is sore. During the next days, the cough may become also wet. The fever is mostly mild, it may not be present at all. However, the temperature may rise up to 38.5 to 39 °C. If there are no complications, the fever usually maintains for two or three days, and the cold subsides in a week. If the child's medical condition does not improve little by little in a week, there are probably complications: inflammation of paranasal sinuses, otitis media, bronchitis, tonsillitis or pneumonia.

If your child has a common cold and there are no complications, no antibiotics have to be administered. Unnecessarily used, antibiotics lower immune response. Natural substances usually are good for children.
