It’s Monday morning, and you just woke up from a restless night of sleep. But you’re not just fighting your usual fatigue — something else is wrong. There is a slight scratch at the back of your throat, a nagging cough and a feeling that an inevitable winter cold is coming.

It’s not the end of the world, but you know the next few days won’t be fun, and you’re not sure what to do.

“Sometimes you can’t [fight off a cold], and you need to let it run its course [for] three to five days,” Angela U. Tucker, M.D., clinical assistant professor of family medicine at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center in Columbus, Ohio, told weather.com. “Sometimes, the best thing that we can do is try to treat the symptoms until the illness over. It’s also important to make sure you do all that you can to give your body at chance to fight the cold off naturally.”

There might not be a cure-all for the common cold, but there are ways to treat it, and prevent it from spreading.
