What are Nurofen Cold & Flu Relief 200mg/5mg Tablets?

Both a cold and the flu are a virus. A cold is commonly formed by a virus that enters the body through the nose, mouth, or even the eyes. The flu is caused by the influenza virus, but unlike a cold where there are over 100 types, there are only three flu types; A, B, and C. Types A and B are responsible for the seasonal flu that is common and type C is the cause of less severe symptoms. Both a cold and flu are contagious and can spread if not treated correctly.
