Difference Between Cold And Flu Symptoms

You won’t. Unless your doctor tests you with a swab of nasal secretions. But remember, far more people die from the usual flu strain than are reported dying from the H1N1 strain. And the treatment is the same for H1Ni as for the seasonal flu. Nevertheless, it does seem to be quite contagious. So protect yourself and those around you.

Flu symptoms include achy muscles and joints, alternating fever and chills, white or clear watery discharge, flu like symptoms. Skin symptoms would be blisters. Asthma is usually associated with viruses. Pneumonia can be both viral and bacterial in origin. Bacterial signs and symptoms include diarrhea, fever, yellow discharge with congestion, and pus, skin discharges would be carbuncles, acne, boils and secondary infections causing lots of oozing and scabbing.

The body will usually tell me if it’s a virus or bacteria, but won’t often let me know which particular strain of virus or bacteria it is if I ask from a list. The juice of one fresh whole lemon once daily for 2-3 days has been helping to break fevers. It helps to flush the system and fry the bacteria, plus it’s alkalizing.

The common cold or upper respiratory tract infection is the cause of many sick days-and why not? Who can work at optimal levels when plagued by congestion, fever, fatigue, runny nose, cough, headache, and a sleepless night? While inconvenient, colds require the attention of a health care professional in only a few cases. For example, someone with mitral valve prolapse, commonly known as a heart murmur, should seek medical attention.

A fever indicates that your body is having to fight quite hard to do what it needs to do. A fever is a good thing and should be left alone. Just keep an eye on it. Seek professional help if it gets out of control. Influenza, popularly termed ‘the flu’, is brought about by the influenza virus, affecting the respiratory tract, including the lungs, nose and throat. It usually starts from mild to serious sickness, and sometimes can be fatal also. The influenza virus can be passed on from person to person via the respiratory droplets from coughs and sneezes, just like the swine flu virus.

Indications or symptoms of influenza may include some or all of the following: headache, fever, general weakness of the body, running or stuffed nose, muscle aches, sore throat and dry coughing. Additional symptoms in children may include gastrointestinal problems like nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and stomach aches. The difference between epidemic and pandemic can be also determined by isolating this disease.

With the virus then spreading out worldwide, hospitals and clinics were confounded with a flood of patients seeking treatment for this new strain of disease. Schools are breeding grounds for germs. Your kids will have a greatly increased risk of catching infections once they go back to school. The best way to combat that is to wash hands often, wash them well, and always wash before eating. There are some natural products that help boost the immune function which can supplement a good diet.
