The common cold, including chest cold and head cold, and seasonal flu are caused by viruses. Symptoms include sore throat, runny nose, congestion, and cough.
Flu symptoms often mimic cold symptoms but a common cold rarely has symptoms of fever above 101 degrees. With flu symptoms, you will probably have a fever initially with the flu virus and you will feel miserable. Body and muscle aches are also more common with the flu.
