INFLUENZA A & B

Influenza A&B are respiratory viruses that flourish during the winter months.  Symptoms start abruptly and usually include high fevers, cold symptoms, deep hacky cough; headache and body aches, and sometimes nausea and vomiting.

The illness usually lasts 5-7 days.  There is a rapid flu test to diagnose, but it is not necessary.  Treatment is directed at the symptoms: fluids, fever medicine, vaporizer, rest.  The illness is viral, so antibiotics don’t help.  Antiviral medinces like Tamiflu only shorten the illness by one day, and can cause psychosis in children, so they are almost never prescribed.
