What is Influenza (flu)

Influenza, sometimes known as the flu, is a respiratory ailment caused by a viral infection. The flu is very contagious and spreads through droplets in the air. It can be passed on by conversation or physical touch, such as shaking hands.

The flu affects the lungs, nose, and throat. Young children, older adults, pregnant women, and persons with chronic illnesses or weakened immune systems are all susceptible to flu.

A person with flu may suffer the following symptoms, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

a fever lasting 3–4 days, a stuffy or runny nose, cold sweats and shivers, severe pains and shivers, a headache, and exhaustion.

However, not everyone who gets the flu exhibits all of these symptoms. For example, some persons have been diagnosed with flu despite not having a fever.

The flu is notorious for surprising people with how rapidly symptoms appear and how deadly the sickness can become. The flu typically begins with a high fever, chills, muscle pains, a moderate headache, and weariness. Other symptoms such as a runny nose and cough may also be present. You’re feeling bad, and you’re feeling bad fast.

Influenza’s classic symptoms include:

a sudden high temperature of 38°C or higher, an aching body, a dry cough, a painful throat, a headache, and difficulty sleeping

a decrease in appetite

tummy ache or diarrhoea

being unwell and feeling sick

What is the treatment for influenza (flu)?

The majority of persons with influenza who do not have any underlying illnesses do not require any specific medications or therapies. Here are some strategies for dealing with influenza:

  • Get plenty of rest.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Maintain a low-calorie diet.
  • Remain at home.
  • Acetaminophen can be used to treat fevers and muscle pains.

Because of the risk of developing Reye’s syndrome, a rare illness that involves brain and liver damage, adults should not administer aspirin to children or adolescents with fevers.

Is it possible to prevent influenza (flu)?

Yes. If you get the flu vaccine, you will usually be immune to the virus for the duration of the flu season. The vaccination comes in two forms: an injection and a nasal spray.

To be protected, you must obtain the vaccine every year, especially around October. The vaccine may not prevent you from catching the flu, but it can make it less severe if you do. Even for pregnant women, the immunization is safe. The ‘flu shot’ will not give you the flu.

Furthermore, several antivirals used to treat flu can also be used to prevent flu in persons who have been in close contact with those who have the virus.

Maintaining regular hand-washing hygiene can help keep influenza at bay. Hands should be thoroughly washed with soap and water. If soap and water aren’t available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

In conclusion, eat healthily, exercise frequently, and get enough of rest. To support your immune system, take a multivitamin (e.g. Kedi Multivitamin + Zinc) and potentially vitamin D pills.
