Causes and treatment of cold and flu

Common colds and flu are commonly transmitted by coming in close contact with an infected person or contaminated objects. When a person sneezes or coughs, the virus travels in the respiratory droplets in the air, and if a person inhales those, he can become infected.

The common cold, also known as seasonal flu, is a mild viral infection of the upper respiratory tract, whereas the flu is a much more severe viral infection. Symptoms of the flu are more potent in intensity and can progress to ear infections, sinus infections and pneumonia.

If you are suffering from any of these viral infection symptoms and require relief from common cold symptoms, connect with Your Doctors Online and get immediate help.
