Common cold

Post by greatmicrobiologist » Thu Sep 08, 2011 12:23 pm

A question has arose in my mind that in common cold, upper respiratory tract infection which causes sore throat, runny nose, cough and fever; so is that innate immunity that causing runny nose? I was confident that it is adaptive immunity but later i got little confused. May be the question is easy but i need clarification. Thanks :)
