Is it a Cold or the Flu?
Even though the symptoms of the Flu are more extreme than the Common Cold, distinguishing between the two can sometimes be difficult.
Here is a simple guide to help you along the way:
|Was the onset of illness...||sudden?||slow?|
|Does your child have a...||high fever?||No (or mild) fever?|
|Is your child’s exhaustion level...||severe?||mild?|
|Is your child’s head...||achy?||headache-free?|
|Is your child’s appetite...||decreased?||normal?|
|Are your child’s muscles...||achy?||fine?|
|Does your child have...||chills?||no chills?|
If most of your answers fall into the Flu column, your child is most likely fighting the flu, If most answers fall into the Cold column, your child is most likely fighting the Common Cold.
HOWEVER, some children can present different symptoms. If you are unsure if it’s the Flu or a COld, SEE YOUR DOCTOR. There are additional test that can be completed to confirm a Flu diagnosis.
Get to know IXL’s amazing staff!!
Dana Madrigal - IRC Teacher
I attended Wichita State University for my Bachelor’s Degree and I am currently attending Pittsburg State University for my Master’s.
This will be my third year teaching at IXL.. I taught 1st grade my first year at IXL and then started as one of the IRC teachers last year.
In my free time I enjoy being outside with my family, reading and swimming.
I was fortunate enough to have a group of wonderful teachers growing up that really encouraged me to strive for the best even when I struggled. I knew from a young age that I wanted to become a teacher to make a difference in student’s life, like my teachers did for me.
