Cough is a common symptom of the common cold, which is caused by inflammation of the lining of the lower respiratory tract, leading to increased bronchial secretions.

Body pain

When exposure to cold temperatures occurs, the constriction of certain blood vessels can cause pain sensations throughout the body. This is known as 'body pain in cold'.


Fever in cold is a medical condition typically caused by a viral or bacterial infection. It is characterized by having a body temperature that rises above normal levels and an accompanying feeling of general discomfort.
