Colds and the flu are respiratory diseases that sometimes have similar symptoms. That is one of the main reasons people often think that colds and the flu are the same conditions. In this regard, colds and flu are different, with the main difference coming from what triggers them.
On the one hand, there are various types of flu, as influenza viruses spread them. On the other hand, other types of viruses cause colds, such as rhinoviruses, parainfluenza viruses, and seasonal Coronaviruses. Note that seasonal Coronaviruses are not the virus that causes Covid-19 (SARS-CoV-2).
A cold is a flu-like infection that starts slowly and lasts several days.
The symptoms are the following:
Fever - up to 38⁰C
Runny and stuffy nose
A dry cough;
Flu is influenza, and the symptoms of this type of respiratory disease appear suddenly within a few hours.
The specific symptoms of flu are:
High temperature - most often, it is above 38⁰C
Severe headache - it is worse than that of a cold
Sore throat - not such a typical symptom; it occurs less often or for a shorter period;
Body aches - severe muscle and joint pain
Fatigue and weakness
Treatment includes a variety of medications according to what the cold and flu symptoms are. It is recommended to consider the symptoms to determine the respiratory disease. Nowadays, different types of medicines are available on the market that will relieve cold and flu symptoms.
Paracetamol or aspirin are usually taken for headaches and fever. Also, there are products intended for a runny or stuffy nose, a dry cough, and a sore throat. The medicines are taken orally, some in tablets and others as a liquid.
In addition to taking medication, we recommend you take vitamins and minerals that will boost your immune system and help you get better faster. Getting enough rest and quality sleep, drinking more tea and water, and eating healthy foods are critical factors in recovering more quickly.
