My name is Kenya, and I have read symptoms of flu and common cold. And it looks like flu coming on way more than common cold.
1)We first compare the pathogens. The pathogen of the common cold is a variety of pathogens such as rhinovirus, and the pathogen of influenza (influenza) is the influenza virus.
2)Now let's compare, the general symptoms of the common cold are sore throat, sneezing, runny nose, stuffy nose, cough, etc.; and influenza is high fever, headache, fatigue.
3)Then compare their fever symptoms, the general cold  generally have no fever symptoms, fever is only low fever ; and influenza will be high fever, can be as high as 39 degrees Celsius to 41 degrees Celsius.
4)Now let's take a look at their systemic symptoms. The common cold usually has no systemic symptoms, and the influenza has whole body muscle soreness.
5)From the point of view of self-healing, the common cold itself is self-reinforcing disease and usually heal itself in 5-7 days. The flu is also self-limiting, but it is easy to cause complications such as pneumonia.
