The NHS states that a common cold or mild cough does not need treatment from a doctor, but it is not always obvious from the symptoms that what you have is a cold or cough. Seeing a private GP allows you to know what you are dealing with, & to ensure that your condition will not progress into a chest infection. The doctor will give you a full examination, any relevant advice on how to reduce your discomfort, & prescribed medications where applicable. Early treatment ensures a speedy recovery.

Causes

Coughs & colds are caused by contact with an infected person, who passes on germs through their coughs & sneezes, or through touching shared surfaces or objects such as door handles, television remotes, or cup handles. The virus is transmitted through the eyes & nose.
