The Common Cold and The Flu

A cold and influenza (“The Flu”) are respiratory illnesses caused by different viruses.   More than 300 different viruses can cause colds and influenza E.g.adenovirus, rhinovirus, parainfluenza virus, coronavirus. Much smaller than a bacterium, a virus is a tiny cluster of genetic material surrounded by a protein wrapper that uses host cells to create copies of itself -and in so doing, sometimes destroys the host's cells.

Is it a cold or allergies?

A cold will last, at most, a few weeks, but allergy symptoms can last all season.
