Influenza is a viral infection that attacks your respiratory system — your nose, throat and lungs. Influenza, commonly called the flu, is not the same as stomach "flu" viruses that cause diarrhea and vomiting.
Initially, the flu may seem like a common cold with a runny nose, sneezing and sore throat. But colds usually develop slowly, whereas the flu tends to come on suddenly. And although a cold can be a nuisance, you usually feel much worse with the flu.
Common signs and symptoms of the flu include:
• Fever over 100 F (38 C)
• Aching muscles, especially in your back, arms and legs
• Chills and sweats
• Dry, persistent cough
• Fatigue and weakness
• Nasal congestion
• Sore throat
• HIB vaccination facility available at Aadil hospital
• Usually, you'll need nothing more than bed rest and plenty of fluids to treat the flu.
• But in some cases, doctor may prescribe an antiviral medication
Consult at Aadil hospital for medical treatment and vaccination.
