Influenza is viral infection, so only symptomatic treatment like paracetamol
is given. As you have got sore throat
, anti-histaminic like cetrizine can be added. Take steam inhalation and do salt water gargling.
But there are certain danger signs , which when present you should see doctor immediately.
These symptoms are-
or shortness of breath
,Pain or pressure in the chest or abdomen,Sudden dizziness
,Confusion,Severe or persistent vomiting,Flu-like symptoms improve but then return with fever and worse cough,Having a high fever for more than three days.
So continue paracetamol, steam inhalation, salt water gargling. Take electrolyte supplements like ORSsolution. If you encounter any of above red flags, consult physician immediately.
I hope this information helps you.
