I have a cold with nasal congestion and coughing. When is appropriate to call for help?

Already.

There's no need to wait. A cold will take it's own sweet time being eradicated from your body. The virus is probably already defeated unless you still have a fever. The symptoms are leftovers from your immune system being activated. There's no need to put up with congestion and coughing, so go ahead and treat the symptoms.

Sandy, go now. I waited and a simple cough turned into pneumonia :-(.

I have gotten my second year pneumonia shot. I got it last year and never got as sick as I have once a year in the past. Hopefully it will work again.
