Summer cold, winter cold, what's the difference?

"Summer cold" is an expression you've likely heard, but aside from the fact that you may get a cold in the summer, is there a difference between summer colds and winter colds?

The simple answer is yes. 

While the symptoms of both summer and winter colds can be similar, the causes can be different. Coronaviruses are more active in winter and early spring and tend to attack the respiratory system. Rhinoviruses, on the other hand, are more active in late spring, summer and early fall. Rhinovirus symptoms tend to be more "sinus" related, including runny nose, blocked sinus, sneezing, post nasal drip and sore throat. The real challenge of a summer cold, however, is that the viruses that cause winter colds, sometimes combine with the viruses that cause summer colds. Some doctors say this can make a summer cold more difficult to treat and longer lasting.
