Glossary On Diagnosis of Common Cold

Your homeopath will generally diagnose a common cold based on the description of your symptoms, history of your illness (onset, duration, progress, modalities), and the findings of your physical examination.

The history of symptoms is very important in diagnosing common cold as it will help to differentiate the other conditions with similar symptoms.

Laboratory tests and image studies are generally not necessary unless there are concerns about another underlying medical condition or potential complications, such as influenza, bacterial sore throat (caused by Streptococcus pyogenes), ear infections, sinus infections or bronchitis (chest infection).
