Colds are a much milder respiratory problem which can make you feel nasal and respiratory discomfort for a few days while the flu can stay on from a few days to some weeks. Colds can go away after a few days and by having enough rest and fluid intake while the flu can last longer and even cause more serious health conditions like hospitalization and pneumonia.
Colds usually begin with having a sore throat. Nasal symptoms like runny nose, congestion, and cough would then follow. Children usually have fever along with their colds but this is uncommon for adults. Flu symptoms come on more quickly and are more severe.
