MP565, Reviewed October 1993
When you have a cold, use this checklist to decide whether a visit to the doctor is necessary.
This checklist is for anyone over 2 years old who is in good general health. People with other health problems and children below age 2 may need to see a doctor even before these warning signs are present.
Always listen to your doctor if he or she gives you advice that is different from this checklist.
