Influenza — or the flu, for short — is a highly contagious virus that causes respiratory infections. The symptoms of the flu usually appear quickly. They include:
The flu and cold have similar symptoms. If you’re coughing with a sore throat and a runny nose, you’re probably wondering if you’re sick with a cold or influenza. There are two main questions you can ask yourself.
If you answer yes to both of those questions, you most likely have the flu. To be sure, visit All Day Medical Care Clinic. The dedicated team provides you with an accurate diagnosis so you can start with effective treatment as quickly as possible.
Because the flu is a virus, antivirals are the most effective way to treat it. These medications are most effective when you take them in the first couple days of contracting the flu.
That’s why it’s important to visit All Day Medical Care Clinic as soon as you start experiencing symptoms. When applied early, these antivirals shorten your sick time and lessen your symptoms.
Even if you don’t take antivirals, flu symptoms usually clear up on their own in a week or less provided you take care of yourself. That includes getting plenty of rest and drinking lots of fluids.
All Day Medical Care Clinic is available to tailor a home treatment plan to help you recover as quickly as possible.
