General Health


A "cold" is the colloquial term for a viral infection of the upper respiratory tract. The symptoms of a cold may include a blocked nose, fever, and sneezing. It is self-limiting, meaning that most times it will resolve within a few days.

At Kena Health, we can assess you and prescribe medication to relieve the symptoms, ensuring that you can function at your best without a cold slowing you down.
