Is it a Cold or the Flu?

At this time of year, some of us may come down with what we think is a cold or is it? Some times we wake up with a cough, fever, chills, and so on, but which is it? 
Symptom's of a cold could be:
Sore Throat
Runny Nose
Sometime a Fever

These symptom's could last a week or longer if not treated. Sometimes with a cold we do not stop and rest and we pass our germs to each other. This is when hand washing and covering your cough comes into the picture, so that we do not spread our germs.

Symptom's of the flu could be:
Sore Throat
Muscle aches/soreness

How do you know if it is a cold or the flu? Take your temperature. Normally if it is a cold your fever, if you have one will not be over 101 degrees. If you think that you may have the flu it is best to go have it checked out! Always better to be safe, especially if you have little ones.
