​You feel ill but is it a cold or flu ?

If you are sneezing, have a runny nose, cough and sore throat, it is likely to be a cold.

What should you do?

  • Take over-the-counter medication
  • Drink lots of water.
  • Get sufficient rest.

You should recover within a week.

However, if you also have a fever, body aches, fatigue and persistent dry cough, chances are, you've got the flu. To know for sure, see a doctor. The good news is, the cold and flu are preventable.

Here's some tips:

  1. Wash your hands with soap and water
  2. Get a flu vaccination
  3. Eat healthily and exercise 30 mins a day.

Remember to use a mask if you develop symptoms.
