You are suffering. Is it a cold or the flu? Learn the similarities – and differences.

Your head aches, your nose is clogged, and your throat is sore. All you want to do is crawl into bed and sleep. But that's the problem—you can't sleep, because your symptoms are making you feel miserable.

When people list the main cold symptoms, most include congestion, runny nose, fatigue and watery eyes. Interestingly, pain isn’t often mentioned.

Products containing ibuprofen in the Advil Cold & Sinus line will not only treat pain, but also address symptom relief with an effective decongestant.

Advil Cold & Sinus provides proven pain relief, with an added decongestant that reopens airways and allows the cold-sufferer to breathe easier.

Headaches are among the most common minor health problems. Tension headaches, which are the most common, account for 90% of all headaches.

A migraine is more than a bad headache. Migraine attacks cause terrible, throbbing pain, and symptoms such as nausea and sensitivity to light and sound.
