A cold, also known as a URI (upper respiratory infection), is one of the most common childhood illnesses. The main symptoms that accompany a cold are a runny nose, cough and fever. It is important to remember that a cough can last up to three weeks, while other cold symptoms might subside. At Little Spurs Pediatric Urgent Care we are able to evaluate your child and determine if they have a URI or not.

About Colds

Usually the fever lasts less than 3 days, and all nose and throat symptoms are gone in a week. A cough may last 2 to 3 weeks. Watch for complications such as an earache, sinus pain, yellow discharge from the ear canal, yellow drainage from the eyes, or fast breathing.

Allergy symptoms include:

  • An itchy runny nose, with thin, clear nasal discharge and/or stuffy nose
  • Itchy watery eyes
  • Repeated attacks of sneezing and itching of the nose, eyes, or skin that last for weeks or months
  • No fever
  • Often seasonal (spring, summer, fall before frost)

  • Stuffy nose
  • Nasal discharge that is usually clear initially but can turn colored and thick
  • A duration of 3 to 10 days, with or without fever
