Swine flu usually presents with high grade fever, not responding to paracetamol
. You have drug induced or viral gastritis. Take an anti emetic like Emset (Ondensetron) 4mg (mouth dissolving twice a day. Have Combiflam if there is fever, but not on an empty stomach (eat something first). Instead of Ciprofloxacin
, have Augmentin (amoxicllin + clavulanic acid
) 625 mg twice a day. Have an anti histamine like levocetrizine 5 mg once daily.
Have a blood test
. Do a Hb, WBC T&D, Platelet Count
, Rapid MP and Urine routine. Widal test This will help rule out malaria, dengue and differentiate between bacterial and viral fevers. There is no way of ruling out H1N1 flu against a simple seasonal flu with out an expensive throat swab. Do this only if you do not feel better in a day or two.
