It depends how good your imune system is, if you smoke and if you have more then 3 colds a year. You might need antibiotics if you have an infection. Try drinking plenty of fresh orange juice and water. I have colds that last up to 4 weeks. Go to your g.p who will see whether or not you need antibiotics.
wow....go 2 the doctor...this is not a WISE place 2 seek medical help
Use Echinacea It helps with your immune system.
I use it every time I get a sore throat or a cold. It is so much better than antibiotics, and cheaper than a Dr visit.
Go to Wal-Mart in the Vitamins section, about $8.00 maybe less. I always get the Big Bottle. Helps everyone I know.
I always take two to start with with some food maybe crackers or soup. I hope you feel better soon.
God Bless you.
No, it shouldn't last this long!!! this is very bad for your immune system you must see a doctor he will be able to prescribe the correct antibiotic for you which should help.

Good luck.
you mai have a bronquial infection by now, best to go for a doctors visit and explain, looks like you need echinacea for all winter after you get out of it, and maybe just maybe a flu vaccine. wish you get well soon. john
Yes, if you smoke you can stay sick for ever! Me and my husband both smoke and each time we get a cold it seems to last ages. The best thing that gets us over it is to get some green tea with antioxidents, and limit the smoking to only a few/day or none at all for a few days.
