What is the difference between a cold and the flu?

Many patients confuse the common cold with the flu virus because they produce similar symptoms and fever. However, the main differences between both are the viruses that cause each and the severity of symptoms.

A common cold is caused by a rhinovirus that travels through a patient’s airways including nasal passages, throat, mouth, and other parts of the upper respiratory symptom. There is no vaccination for a common cold, but symptoms last for a few days and are easily treatable.

The influenza virus, either type A or B, is the cause of a patient’s flu. When a patient gets the flu they are likely to miss upwards of a week due to intense symptoms. The flu creates more health complications than a common cold, and may even lead to hospitalization in vulnerable patients. However, patients can get a vaccination for a flu shot at AFC Urgent Care Warrington!
