How long will I have this Cold?

How long will I have this Cough?

Cold symptoms usually appear two or three days after you’ve been exposed to the virus.1 Once your symptoms start, your cold will usually last for about one week.

Many of us feel a cough should last a little over a week, but according to most doctors, the reality is that a cough lasts closer to 18 days. 2

In either case, you should check with your doctor if your symptoms worsen or last longer than one week.

For a cough, you can always turn to BENYLIN® Dry Cough. And if you have more than just a cough, try BENYLIN® Extra Strength Cough Plus Cold Relief Syrup.
