Colds vs. Flu 

Woman Sneezing

The common cold and the flu are two separate illnesses, though their symptoms can be very similar.

The “flu” is caused by the Influenza virus and is generally more severe than the common cold. If identified and treated quickly, antiviral medications are available to shorten the duration and severity of the illness. 

The common cold may be treated with over-the-counter medications. Unfortunately, Vitamin C and other cold remedies have been shown to be pretty ineffective in treating, preventing or shortening the common cold.  The best thing you can do is to take care of yourself by drinking plenty of fluids, resting and washing your hands frequently to prevent the spread of illness.

Influenza can be prevented with an annual flu shot. If you find yourself sick with symptoms of the flu, contact the Student Health Center or your medical provider as soon as possible.
