What is the difference between colds and flu?

Colds and flu are so similar that some people struggle to know the difference between the two. The main difference between a cold and the flu is the severity of the symptoms, flu symptoms are much more severe than that of a cold. One way to tell the difference between a cold and flu is the severity of a fever. If you have a cold, you may see your temperature rise a little, but those with the flu will usually develop a higher fever that can last for 3 – 4 days before breaking. The main symptoms of cold and flu include:

Symptoms of cold

  • A blocked or runny nose.
  • A sore throat.
  • Headaches.
  • Coughs.
  • Sneezing.
  • A raised temperature.
  • Pressure in your ears and face.
  • Loss of taste and smell.

Symptoms of the flu

Symptoms of the cold plus:

  • A sudden fever- a temperature of 38°C or above.
  • An aching body.
  • Feeling tired or exhausted.
  • Difficulty sleeping.
  • Loss of appetite.
  • Diarrhoea or tummy pain.
  • Feeling sick and being sick.

How does this product treat colds and flu?

Nurofen Cold and Flu contains two active ingredients which are effective in relieving cold and flu symptoms. The first of these ingredients is ibuprofen, an anti-inflammatory which works to relieve pains, headaches, swelling, and can help to reduce a fever. The second active ingredient is phenylephrine hydrochloride which works as a nasal decongestant, reducing swelling in the passages of your nose and relieving congestion.
