    hello, cold and catarrh are not symptoms of pneumonia.cold and catarrh are mostly caused by viruses but pneumonia is mainly a bacterial disease.catarrh will go with or without treatmen in abt 5-7days.pneumonia will require treatment with antibiotics.its symptoms include pain when breathing, cough with sputum,fever etc.
