A variety of symptoms set these two conditions apart.
You’ve got a cold if:
You’ve got the sneezes, a runny or stuffed-up nose, and sometimes a mild cough
or sore throat. Colds usually last no longer than a week.
You’ve got the flu if:
You have a fever, headache, joint and muscle pain, and fatigue. You may have a
cough as well as nausea and vomiting. Flus can last several weeks.
There are many remedies at the pharmacist. Remember to read the labels carefully,
use only as directed and see your GP if symptoms persist.
