Is it the flu or just a bad cold?

cold or flu

With winter around the corner, it’s time to start taking precautions against illnesses. If you get sick, but aren’t sure if you’re fighting a cold or the flu, there are certain signs and symptoms that can help you differentiate between the two and treat your illness appropriately.

Major differences:

• Flu symptoms happen abruptly, while the cold is more gradual.

• Stuffy or runny noses are more common with colds.

• Chills and fatigue are more common with the flu.

While knowing these differences helps, we recommend visiting a doctor as soon as you feel ill to be 100% sure.
