How to Manage Influenza Symptoms

Influenza is caused by a virus and cannot be treated with antibiotics.  It takes time for a person to recover from influenza.  Help the ill person get enough to drink and feel as comfortable as possible.

Influenza symptoms can come on fast and send you to bed feeling weak and worn out.  This is a normal part of influenza.  It may take 3-5 days for symptoms to improve, but symptoms can last longer.  Most people do not need to see a doctor or go to the emergency room.  Like the common cold–treat the symptoms.  Antibiotics do not work on influenza and cold viruses.  A child's symptoms can change quickly, so monitor them closely.
