Host: What is the difference between a cold and the flu?
Ronald Turner: Well, colds are mild illnesses. They generally are associated with sore throat, stuffy nose, runny nose, maybe some cough and sneezing but they are typically, not associated with systemic findings, muscle aches or fever, that sort of thing. In contrast, a flu is a very rapid on set illness that is associated with pain, it's associated with sore throat and with cough, tends to have much less nasal symptoms in terms of runny nose and nasal stuffiness and usually, it is associated with significant systemic symptoms, muscles ache and that sort of thing.
