How soon can one start cardio exercise and jogging if suffering from severe cold and cough? When should one start an antibiotic if not recovering from severe cold in 3 days?

1 Doctor Answered
Hello. One should avoid exercise in presence of fever, weakness and coughing on exertion or exercise. The decision to start antibiotic is when a physician rules out viral / allergic cough and for this some blood tests and chest and sinus xrays along with examination of chest and nose would be reqd. Can help in private. Take a consult online.
