The Difference Between a Cold and the Flu
Although both have similar symptoms and are both respiratory illnesses, the flu, and the common cold are caused by different viruses.
In general, the flu, of course, is the more serious one with its symptoms more intense and colds are milder than the flu. People who experience colds have stuffy and runny noses and do not require medical treatment.
The flu, on the other hand, can either be mild or severe which sometimes requires hospitalization and medical treatment.
Flu can also sometimes lead to other conditions such as pneumonia, bronchitis, and bacterial infections.
