Coughs and colds are common diseases in children caused by germs or viruses. Colds are fast spreading viral diseases of the soft lining of the nose called the mucosa. These normally ease up on their own, and antibiotic medicines are usually of no use. It is said that cough and cold gets cured on its own in 4-10 days. However, if the symptoms still persists than it can be something else. Cold is also seasonal, it is most common during winter season and affects children mostly because they have a lower immunity. There are more than 200 different viruses that can cause cold. Children need adequate amounts of fluids as a result to keep them hydrated and prevent dehydration.
