Cold in general is usually caused by a virus and treated symptomatically (over-the-counter medications), however, in case of shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, seeing the doctor would be recommended.

More information will be needed as to a history of asthma or/and smoking, as both can make cold symptoms much worse and medical intervention will be needed as soon as possibe. The cough is usually a result of the shortness of the breath sometimes and frequently cough would sometimes lead to side and rib pain as the muscles will become exhausted from the frequent coughing; in some old patients, it may lead to fracture in their ribs on occasions.
It would be recommended to see a doctor in case of cold with:
- fever
- sore throat (severely painful)
- shortness of breath and difficulty breathing (with or without cough)
