Warm head no fever

In this case, if you have a head cold, it won’t be “wet” enough to cause a fever. It will be cold.

It’s important to know that it’s possible to have a cold that won’t produce a fever. Even though you may not have flu-like symptoms, there are other factors that can cause a fever.

Head cold vs. flu

Both head colds and flu are caused by viruses. They’re similar in that they both involve the same types of viruses.

However, they’re different in that the cold and flu are both caused by viruses. Head colds will usually involve different types of viruses than flu.

In essence, a head cold is a viral infection that affects your nasal passages. It may cause sneezing, runny nose and congestion. You can get a cold from direct contact with someone who has the cold or from inhaling contaminated air.

The flu is a viral infection that can affect your respiratory system. It can be caused by the same viruses that cause colds. However, the flu is much more common than colds.

Unlike a cold, the flu is caused by a virus. It can be serious and even life-threatening.

Head cold symptoms

Head cold symptoms can be very similar to those of the common cold, the runny nose and congestion.

Symptoms can include:

  • Sore throat
  • Runny nose
  • Sneezing
  • Congestion
  • Headache
  • Cough
  • Fatigue
  • Fever

Head cold treatment

Treatment for a head cold will depend on the cause. It’s important to follow your doctor’s advice when they tell you to rest and drink plenty of fluids to help you recover faster.

Depending on what causes you to get a head cold, you can treat it with over-the-counter (OTC) medications.

OTC medications include:

  • Nasal decongestant: These can help relieve congestion.
  • Decongestant nasal spray: This can help relieve the congestion.
  • Decongestant eye drops: These can help relieve any eye irritation.

OTC medications may not be the right choice for you if you have a head cold due to sinusitis. Sinusitis is an infection of the sinuses. If you have a sinus infection, you may be better off with your doctor’s advice.

If you have a head cold that isn’t caused by cold or flu, you may be better off taking a pain medication. This can help ease your headache and other symptoms.

Head cold complications

Head colds can be very uncomfortable. They can also be very serious. If you have a head cold, it’s very important to get medical treatment.

With an untreated head cold, the virus can spread throughout your body. This can cause complications, including:

  • Severe ear infections
  • Severe sinus infections
  • Pneumonia
  • Coughing up blood
  • Death

It’s important to take care of yourself when you have a head cold. If you have a head cold, you’ll need to rest and drink more fluids.

Also, you should always wash your hands and avoid touching your face. This will help prevent the spread of germs to your mouth and nose.

If you have a head cold and have flu-like symptoms, you’ll need to seek medical attention.

Head cold causes

A head cold is caused by a virus. It can be very contagious. If you have a cold, you can pass it on to others.

Different viruses cause different types of colds. For example, rhinoviruses cause colds that mainly affect the nasal passages.

Flu viruses cause the flu and other respiratory illnesses. The flu is more common than colds, but it can still cause them.
