Detailed Answer:
Welcome to 'Ask A Doctor' service.
Sorry for the trouble you have been having, but you need not to be worried.

A flue is quite common, almost always caused by a virus that would most likely settle in few days itself without any treatment.

Yes, although the symptoms may be troublesome. It can cause multiple symptoms like dry Throat, cough and body aches.

There are a number of over the counter preparations like flue Eze, or cofcol, arinac etc. You may use them for the symptomatic relief. Rest it's going to be alright in a few days.

Please avoid strenuous exercise for a few days and take more and more fluid.
See your doctor if you feel any difficulty in n breathing (which is unlikely).

Get well soon.
Please don't hesitate to ask if you any further questions or concerns.

Kind regards
Dr. Mahboob Ur Rahman
