Why some people get more severe colds Â Â
Nasal bacteriaÂ Â Â
The organisms that live inside your nose could determine the type and severity of the cold symptoms you develop, a new study has found. Researchers from the University of Virginia School of Medicine have found that cold sufferers whose noses had a great deal of Staphylococcus bacteria had more severe nasal symptoms.
Also, those with more Moraxella – which causes lower respiratory tract infections – had worse symptoms and a greater viral load. The study was published in the journal Scientific Reports.
