Health Tip: When to Call the Doctor About a Cold or Flu

(HealthDay News) -- Flu and the common cold share some common symptoms. Though both often can be treated at home, more serious cases require a doctor's care.

The American Academy of Family Physicians mentions these warning signs that you should see a doctor:

  • A persistent fever of higher than 102 degrees Fahrenheit that causes body aches and fatigue.
  • Symptoms that persist for longer than 10 days, or symptoms that worsen instead of improve.
  • Shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, or pressure or pain in the chest.
  • Confusion, disorientation or fainting.
  • Vomiting persistently.
  • Significant sinus pain affecting the forehead or face.
  • Swelling of glands in the neck or jaw.
