aCom­mon colds take up to two weeks to get bet­ter. Sore throats take seven to eight days, si­nusi­tis two to three weeks and ear in­fec­tions about eight days. Coughs can go on a bit longer – up to three weeks, though if you have a cough that lasts longer, please visit your doc­tor to rule out any­thing sus­pect. If you do have one of these ill­nesses, make sure you drink plenty of flu­ids to stay hy­drated (and soothe a sore throat), use over-the­counter med­i­ca­tion if needed and seek ad­vice if you are con­cerned.
