MORGAN COUNTY, AL (WAFF)- Coughing, sneezing, fever and more...all are symptoms of the common cold. But it's summer. Shouldn't cold season be in the winter?
Why does it seem like summer colds are worse? We asked a couple of people running errands in Decatur. Lindy Smith said, "...the time of the year. Because you're just wanting to be out going and doing and taking part in stuff and when you have to be in and have the sniffles that's not fun."
John D. Sherrill said it's the way it hits you, "Sinus...sinus? Yeah, I think that would be one explanation."
But doctors said the seasons don't matter. Dr. Akram Haggag is an internal medicine specialist. "No. In fact that's the dangerous thing about it, people think that in the summer they don't get a cold...because they think it's due to rain or Winter," said Dr. Haggag.
