Cold is a Status ailment in EarthBound Beginnings and EarthBound which causes the character afflicted with it to sneeze on each turn, causing a small amount of damage.

EarthBound Beginnings[]

Colds can be caught from people in Reindeer & Snowman. It can be cured by visiting the doctor at the Hospital or gargling Mouthwash. Mouthwash can be purchased at the department stores late game or by visiting the old man at the Mislay Triangle northwest of Reindeer.

EarthBound[]

A cold is signified by a runny nose icon on the player's status window. It can be cured through Secret Herbs, Cold Remedies , or any level of PSI Healing. It also inflicts damage periodically while outside of battle; when this happens, the screen briefly flashes red (not unlike the effect of Sunstroke). The Spinning Robo, Li'l UFO, and Guardian Hieroglyph are three enemies that can afflict Ness and his party with a Cold.
