Common Cold and Flu Symptoms
Distinguishing between a cold and the flu can be tricky due to similar symptoms:
- Body aches and sore muscles
- Persistent headaches
- Itchy or sore throat
- Stuffy or runny nose
Cold symptoms typically appear days after virus exposure, starting with sneezing and watery eyes. Left untreated, a common cold can escalate. Flu symptoms, sudden and intense, may include chills, sweats, vomiting, diarrhea, and a persistent cough.
While there's no cure for a cold, over-the-counter medications can ease symptoms. For common cold or flu treatment in Colleyville, contact Urgentology Care at (817) 799-7273 or visit our clinic.
