Mucus In Nose, Throat & Chest

Cold and Flu Symptoms

Having a cold or flu can lead to aches and pains, a headache, blocked nose, sore throat and a chesty cough. All these symptoms together can leave you feeling very under the weather and in need of soothing relief.

It can sometimes be difficult to tell if you have flu or just a cold, as the symptoms can be quite similar. The main differences are:

Flu symptoms:

  • Come on quickly
  • Usually include fever and aching muscles
  • Make you feel too unwell to continue your usual activities

Cold symptoms:

  • Come on gradually
  • Mainly affect your nose and throat
  • Are fairly mild, so you can still get around and are usually well enough to go to work
