Respiratory infections encompass a wide range of illnesses affecting the lungs and airways, and their symptoms can vary depending on the specific infection and its severity. Here's a general overview of common symptoms to watch out for:
Upper respiratory symptoms:
- Runny or stuffy nose: This is perhaps the most common symptom of a respiratory infection, caused by inflammation and increased mucus production in the nasal passages.
- Sore throat: Scratchiness, irritation, and pain in the throat are often due to inflammation caused by the virus or bacteria.
- Sneezing: The body's attempt to expel irritants and pathogens from the nasal passages.
- Coughing: A reflex to clear mucus and irritants from the airways. Initially dry, it can become productive (wet) with phlegm later.
- Mild fever: A sign that the body's immune system is fighting the infection.
Lower respiratory symptoms:
- Chest pain or tightness: Can be caused by inflammation of the airways or the pleura (lining of the lungs).
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing: This can occur due to airway obstruction, fluid buildup in the lungs, or difficulty getting enough oxygen into the bloodstream.
- Wheezing: A high-pitched whistling sound during exhalation, indicating narrowed airways.
- Fatigue and muscle aches: The body's response to the infection and inflammation.
- Headache: A common symptom associated with fever and general malaise.
- Loss of smell or taste: Can occur with some viral infections, like COVID-19.
- Nausea and vomiting: Though less common, these can occur in some respiratory infections, especially in children.
- These are just general symptoms, and not everyone will experience all of them.
- The severity of symptoms can also vary depending on the type and severity of the infection.
- If you're experiencing any concerning respiratory symptoms, especially difficulty breathing, high fever, or chest pain, it's crucial to seek medical attention promptly.
Early diagnosis and treatment can help prevent complications and ensure a faster recovery.

P23 went above and beyond for me to ensure I got my results before my flight. It saved me a lot of time and stress, and now I get to enjoy the UK!
I had a AWESOME experience with P23 Labs!!. I like the fact the tests are saliva because it makes it much easier to test a 6 year old. Will definitely keep ordering
