If you’re worried about your flu symptoms or are having trouble sleeping, the best way to deal with it is to keep a positive outlook, the experts say.
What to do if you have the flu article In a recent article in the Australian Medical Association journal of infectious diseases, the researchers wrote: …the flu is a highly contagious illness, which means you need to get up early and go about your day as usual, including washing your hands and clothing.
There is no specific treatment for flu, and people are at risk of developing other serious illnesses, such as pneumonia, if they are not well enough to do this.
People can’t avoid the flu, so they need to stay well hydrated and keep their immune system up to date.
In general, people should avoid touching or handling surfaces containing germs or other infectious materials.
The same goes for washing your face, neck and mouth.
There is no evidence that the flu causes harm to people who don’t get sick.
So, don’t be alarmed if you get a fever, cough, sneezing, or sore throat, even if you’ve been vaccinated.
You may also feel more at ease and feel less tired if you’re taking the flu prevention vaccine.
For some people, it’s better to take the vaccine before bedtime, rather than after, to avoid infection.
But it’s important to check with your GP if you feel more or less relaxed or at ease, says Dr Jena Brown from the University of Queensland.
She says it’s best to use an inhaler to avoid being exposed to germs while you’re coughing or sneezed.
You can also get a nasal spray, which is also used to prevent infection in the nasal cavity.
The nasal spray can be used in the afternoon or evening for mild to moderate coughs and sneezes.
But if you don’t feel well, use a milder spray.
If you feel sick or have any other symptoms, seek medical attention.
The flu can also be caused by other illnesses, including colds, flu, pneumonia, and coronavirus.
However, the main focus of the flu vaccine is to protect against the flu.
This includes the three most common strains of the influenza, which are H3N2, H1N1 and H5N1.
If the vaccine doesn’t protect against any of these strains, then it is not yet ready to be used for flu.
Dr Brown says the vaccine is not as effective in protecting against H3H2N2 and H1H1N2 as it is against H1 and B strains.
She also says people should get vaccinated against all strains of influenza, and take the recommended dose of the vaccine when they are most likely to be exposed.
