How is the infection diagnosed?

Often an individual will diagnose a cold without seeing a healthcare provider. If a provider is seen, he or she will examine the person's head, neck, and lungs. The provider will also look for signs and symptoms of more serious respiratory illnesses, such as pneumonia or bronchitis.
