3. Stuffy or Runny Nose and Sneezing

Because influenza B is a respiratory illness, many people think they merely have a cold when symptoms begin. The sneezing and stuffy or runny nose may well be signs of a cold if they appear gradually, but those same symptoms, when they come on suddenly, may indicate the presence of the flu.

The virus causes swelling in the nasal passages and the accumulation of fluid. Breathing steam can help alleviate some of these symptoms. Using over-the-counter remedies may also be helpful.2‘Influenza (Flu).’ Mayo Clinic, Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research, 19 Dec. 2020, www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/flu/symptoms-causes/syc-20351719.
