The cold and flu are caused by different viruses, but they both affect the respiratory system and may produce unpleasant symptoms that can make it difficult to go about your day as normal. Many people with these illnesses suffer from fever, body aches, sore throats and/or a dry cough, fatigue, and general malaise. Cold or flu treatment from a physician isn’t always necessary since symptoms may resolve on their own with rest and over-the-counter medications, but it’s important to seek professional medical care if you are experiencing severe symptoms such as:
- A fever higher than 101.3 degrees Fahrenheit (100.4 degrees for children)
- A fever that persists for longer than five days, or returns after going away
- Intense sinus pain, headache, or sore throat
- Bothersome symptoms that prevent you from performing your best at school, work, or home
People who are considered to be at a high risk of developing serious complications from the cold or flu – including individuals who are obese, pregnant, or over the age of 65 – should be particularly mindful of severe cold or flu symptoms that necessitate treatment. Adults with compromised immune systems or certain chronic conditions such as asthma or diabetes are also considered to be more vulnerable to complications.
