What are some ways to treat the symptoms of a head cold?
As of 2015, there is no known cure for the common cold and treatment options are generally designed to provide relief or minimize the course of cold-related symptoms. Over-the-counter drugs, such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen, ease muscle pains and reduce fever, notes Medline Plus. Non-prescription cold and cough medications may also provide relief in older children and adults.
