Thanks for writing in to us.
It looks like you have had an attack of flu
. Please do not worry. You are doing the right thing by trying to keep yourself hydrated and in good health. As it is improving you must have had viral flu. There are no specific medications for that but you may do mouth gargle and take antihistamine syrup (Benadryl
) for comfort from the cold
. The bad odour is nothing serious and most likely temporary.
Hope this helps
