There is a difference between summer cold and winter cold and one might as well know about it. What is the difference?
One usually suffers from colds in summer like in winter and one might feel whether there is a difference between the two colds. Yes indeed. Although the symptoms of both can be the same the causes are different.
Coronaviruses are indeed more active in winter and early spring and tend to attack one’s respiratory system. Rhinoviruses, on the other hand, are in fact more active in late spring, summer as well as early fall.
Rhinovirus symptoms are more “sinus” related, including a runny nose, blocked sinus, sneezing, post nasal drip as well as a sore throat.
The problem that one faces with summer cold is that the viruses that cause winter colds do tend to combine with the viruses that cause summer colds. Treating a summer cold is rather difficult and takes a long time.
