Treating Pain From Colds / Symptoms Of A Cold

It’s important to treat both the symptoms and pain from a cold.

When people are asked to list the main cold symptoms, most respond with congestion, runny nose, fatigue, watery eyes and other forms of discomfort. Interestingly, pain isn’t often mentioned.

But the swelling that causes congestion, and the fluid that fills the sinus cavities, press on nerve endings—leading to headaches and achiness. Feelings of fatigue and exhaustion often result in a general soreness. Increased nerve sensitivity in the face can make usually painless occurrences—loud noises, sneezing, being touched—uncomfortable experiences.

It is important to treat cold symptoms such as runny nose and watery eyes, but remedies for colds can also help treat the associated pain, such as headache and body aches. And the root cause of congestion is swollen nasal tissue. Advil Cold & Sinus can work at the root of the problem by reducing nasal swelling.
