  • Neither for the regular nor the swine flu do you HAVE to be vomiting. There MAY be vomiting, but there doesn't have to be.

    Swine flu DOES have a fever, the regular flu may or may not have a fever. It has more to do with the severity of the symptoms and length of the infection.

    Just a cough and runny nose is just a cold.
