A cough is a reflex that helps get rid of mucus and foreign particles in your airways. When the cough receptors scattered throughout your airways are stimulated by irritants or triggered by an accumulation of excess mucus, they send a signal to the cough center in the brain to bring about a cough.
Chest congestion is when the membranes that line your airways are irritated and inflamed, resulting in the production of thicker and more abundant mucus. This irritation can be caused by inhaling particles such as allergens, bacteria or viruses.
Nasal & Sinus Congestion
Your sinuses, the pairs of cavities in your skull that connect to your nasal passageways, are thinly lined with mucus membranes to keep the inside of your nose moist. Irritants like viruses can cause the mucus membranes to become inflamed, narrowing the passageways and resulting in the accumulation of thick mucus. This causes that uncomfortable feeling of congestion making it difficult to breathe through your nose.
Irritants can cause inflammation of the mucus membranes lining your airways and swelling of the sinus tissues, leading to space restriction and decreased drainage of the sinus. This causes excess mucus buildup, putting pressure on the underlying tissues in your face and leading to that uncomfortable feeling of sinus pressure.
A fever is not an illness by itself but a symptom of something else that's making you sick, most likely an infection. A fever is one of the ways your body responds to and battles an infection. As your body fights the infection, your body temperature may rise, resulting in a fever.
Body pain is a common symptom of many conditions, including the cold and flu. These viral infections attack your body, and in response natural chemicals are released in the body to help white blood cells fight off infection. However, these same chemicals can cause the body to feel aches and pains as a side effect.
Headaches can feel different for everyone and are a common symptom of the cold and flu. Headaches from the cold and flu can be caused by swelling in your sinuses or blood vessels in your head. When you have a viral infection, your body secretes prostaglandins that can also cause headaches.
When your throat is scratchy and even talking hurts, you just want relief. There are many causes of sore throats, but the most common is a viral infection, like a cold or the flu. Antibiotics can't effectively treat a viral infection, but there are home remedies and pain relievers you can try to make you feel more comfortable.
