Upper Respiratory Infections

Upper respiratory infections affect the nasal passages and throat. They are typically caused by a virus and cause symptoms including:

  • Coughing
  • Congestion
  • Sneezing
  • Pressure in the nasal passages
  • Sore throat

Upper respiratory infections will generally go away on their own within a week or two, but antihistamines, decongestants, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can be prescribed to alleviate symptoms.

Lower Respiratory Infections

Lower respiratory infections, such as pneumonia and bronchitis, affect the lungs and airways and are typically more serious than upper respiratory infections. Symptoms of a lower respiratory infection are likely to include:

  • Runny nose
  • Cough
  • Fever
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Wheezing

Some mild lower respiratory infections will clear up on their own with rest, but you should still seek medical attention if you experience symptoms as the condition can become serious.
