Antiviral medicines for preventing swine flu can only be prescribed by your health provider after assessing your risk of contracting swine flu. As of now they are not recommended for otherwise healthy travelers. International authorities are not recommending any kind of travel restrictions for frequent travelers because of swine flu. I think you would not need these medicines unless you are in close contact with a known or suspected case of swine flu.

Just got over flu symptoms after 3 days (fever, vomiting, weakness). I am now suffering from soreness directly under my jaw line- so swollen that it is sensitive to touch, and also visible.
