Please take treatment for Flu from your local doctor.
One reading of Blood pressure of 186/91 doesnt confirm Hypertension.But,you should be cautious and record the Blood pressure regularly.If it is persistently higher,consult your doctor and take Anti hypertensives.
Because of weakness due to Flu,he may be having headache which will be relieved with drugs.
Nothing to worry.
