When you’re coughing and sneezing, feeling feverish and sore all over, how do you know if it’s the flu or just a cold?

Both are respiratory conditions, but a cold is milder. Cold symptoms usually bother you for a few days, while the flu can make you sick for up to a couple of weeks.

The flu can also lead to more serious illnesses like pneumonia and even land you in hospital.
