Well i dont but many says i should do so,, coz it may be some viral or severe kinda infection that can increase further. But i always dont take care fof it and get some relief tablets myself and rest a day or two and i get ok. What do u do, do u consult a doctor everytime u get little sickness ??

yeah that would be pointless!! you would pay soo much just for nothing. if you get over the counter medicnes, they say on the box if symptoms persist consult a doctor. i wait.. 5-7 days depending on how i feel then i will go. or if ive had the virus before, and know what im getting, then maybe before then

I'm a doctor's nightmare.. I only visit them when I'm, say, really worst. -_-" I treat colds and fevers as normal occurrences - I would only notice something different when I've had it for a week, and even then, I never remember to take my meds. -_-"

It is recommended that you go see a docor for most of your diseases, Because even if you dont go to a doctor you may get fine . But the different is that if you go to a doctor you'll get fine in 3 days{say} as compared to the natural healing process of 7 - 8 days. Moreover you never know for youself the intensity of the disease you are suffering from.

I dont see a doctor every time i get a cold, I find it pointless, they are only going to tell you to rest, drink lots of fluids, maybe take some medication for fever. I prefer to stay home, make a big pot of chicken soup and rest untill it passes, generally within a few days. If i get a really high fever, or start acting strange with being sick, then i see a doctor, If it dosent go away in 2 weeks ill go into a doctor, because then it could be an infection. But for normal run on the mill colds i just wait for them to pass.
