Is possible to have both the flu and a cold at the same time?

DH has been sick for a week and seems to have elements of both , I have been near and thank goodness have not gotten sick. I do have three virus filters going and think that has helped plus a special vitamins. neither one of us got a flu shot this year. Someone at work exposed him to it, that plus being over worked. Still hoping I will be OK. How about your family?

  • The flu and a cold exhibit many of the same symptoms the major difference between a flu and a cold is the presence of a high fever and stomach problems with the flu.

  • I think he got both, high fever and stuffed up. I do not get how I'm still OK while he was wiped out. I will post a photo of the unit later.
