Symptoms may last 7-14 days and may linger up to 3 weeks
What is the same?
Both colds and flu are considered upper respiratory infections of the nose, sinuses, and throat. Symptoms can be similar, so keep an eye on what’s bothering you most.
Achoo! The moment you experience that first symptom can leave you wondering—is this the common cold, or the infamous flu?
Translating and treating your cold or flu symptoms shouldn’t add to your discomfort. While there are many similar symptoms between a cold and the flu, symptoms of the flu are quite unique.
How to treat the flu or a common cold
Both colds and the flu require lots of rest, fluids and time to run their course, but there are some extra things you can do at home to help relieve symptoms, including the following. Talk to your doctor if you have any questions.
Bye, bye dry
Use a humidifier to keep the air moist and ease throat and nose discomfort.
A soothing sip
Warm liquids like tea and chicken soup can help a sore, scratchy throat.
