You know your body better than anyone else, and you also know that ‘feeling’ when you think you are getting sick. This CVS sponsored video through the MinuteClinic Nurse Practitioner, really details the difference between the cold and the flu. Easy to understand, the information includes a complete list of symptoms pre, during and post illness to help identify for diagnosis as well as treatment. The symptoms as well as duration of the cold or flu onset are the key for identification. Since allergies are often confused with cold and flu symptoms, the nurse practitioner lists this information, so that the patient can indentify and follow up with a major health provider for consultation and treatment of the correct situation.
