How to know the difference between a cold and the flu


With summer around the corner, the last thing you want to worry about is catching a cold. There is not much worse than having to lie in bed with a box of tissues, lots of fluids to drink, and looking out the window at a perfect sunny day.

As adults we tend to downplay our symptoms a bit, especially if they are as insignificant as a runny nose or a dose of blocked sinuses. So how do you know if you really have the dreaded flu or when it is just your average run-of-the-mill cold?


Do I have a cold or the flu?


We have listed a quick chart that you can use to determine at a glance whether you have more symptoms of the cold or the flu.

The cold and flu generally spread via airborne droplets, it is therefore very important that you cover your nose and mouth when you sneeze or cough and to wash your hands regularly. It is always a good idea to sanitize your working environment regularly throughout the day. Over here at Sprinkle Spray we have a fantastic disinfectant spray that not only neutralizes odors, but that actually kills the bacteria that creates the odor, further helping to assist in limiting cross infection. 


What is the best medicine to treat my cold/flu?


The best medicine for a cold or flu, is generally taking lots of fluids and getting plenty of rest. You can also take over the counter medicines that can assist with any pain or other discomforts that you might have. It is also a great idea to gargle regularly with warm salt water to help soothe your throat a bit. If you or your family are regularly sick, it might be a good idea to disinfect your home, office or school weekly or to take advantage of our once off fizzbom sprays that we regularly provide to various facilities and homes. Sprinkle Spray can definitely assist in helping to create a healthier environment at your home, office, child's school, etc. Should you wish for us to service your child's school, you are more than welcome to contact us for this as well. :)
