Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between the common cold and the flu?

It’s easy to confuse a cold with the flu since their symptoms can be so similar. Both are respiratory illnesses, but they’re caused by different viruses. Untreated common cold symptoms can be irritating and potentially cause other issues like a sinus infection, but a medical professional can help you manage your symptoms.

How long does the common cold last, and how often is it experienced, on average?

Most adults and children recover from the sneezing, coughing, aches and pains of the common cold and its symptoms within 7 to 10 days. Adults average 2 or 3 colds a year, and kids often have more.
