THERE IS NO FULL PROOF VACCINACTION FOR COMMAN FLU,THE SEASONAL FLU OR INFLUENZA IS A VIRAL DISEASE AND ONLY NEEDS SYMPTOMATIC TREATEMENT,THE DISEASE SUBSIDES USUALLY BY 7-10 DAYS,THE DISEASE IS COMMUNICABLE AS OTHER INFECTION,SIMPLE PARACETAMOL IN APPROPRIATE DOSES WILL SUBSIDE THE SYMPTOM,NO ANTI BACTERIAL/ANTIBIOTIC IS RECOMMENDED.

Most of the times i get seasonal flu, i am allergic to dust and more prone to climatic changes. frequently i got cold and running nose. i took a course of antibiotics, i took allergy tablets also. but nothing helped. you only tell me how can i avoid dust and other unknown allergens which i donot know. can i change the climatic condition? thank god i went for ayurvedic treatment. they gave me good pills, to which i responded very well. now i am using only ayurvedic pills only. i also suggests you to go for it..

My son is the exact same way, he is a very healty child so its not a matter of boosting up his immune system. Just like your son, my son gets a fever every time the weather changes, and its not just the to cold weather. I live in south texas so even when it changes from 100 degrees down to 85.

You need to improve his immunity, give more of vegetables, fruits. This will boost the immunity and help to fight against infections. Take protective measures like avoid people who has cough, cold, sneeze. Teach him to eash hands frequently
