Associated Conditions for Common Cold

Asthma attacks among children increase in early autumn, leading to a sharp rise in asthma-related doctor visits and hospitalizations. Colds due to rhinovirus also peak each fall when children return to school. Viral infections are a known trigger for asthma attacks, leading doctors to believe that rhinovirus is largely responsible for the seasonal increase in asthma problems.
