‘Tis the season for sneezing and with coughs heard far and wide you are likely to catch a bug of your own - but can you tell which bug you’ve just caught? 


Many of us, tend to interchangeably use the terms ‘cold’ and ‘flu’ when we start to feel under the weather or develop a cough.  


Well, what if I told you, they’re two completely different things? Each with their own symptoms and they need different treatments!
