UP CLOSE WITH THE FLU

Influenza or the flu is a respiratory infection caused by type A, B, and C influenza virus.You get it when flu viruses enter your body through your nose and mouth. So, a person who coughs or sneezes near you can easily transmit the flu virus to you. That’s why you should always cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze and wash your hand frequently and with a correct technique.2

Because flu viruses change, researchers worldwide monitor the 3 or 4 viruses most likely to infect the most people. The researchers then create a vaccine in anticipation of these flu viruses. Flu vaccines are particularly important, especially during the flu season.3

THE FLU CULPRITS

Unlike the cold, which can be caused by over 200 different viruses, the flu is only caused by influenza virus types A, B and C.1
 

While the flu vaccine can protect you from Type A and B flu viruses, the causes of large seasonal outbreaks, there is no immunization for the type C virus.1

MANAGING FLU SYMPTOMS

1. Drink, drink, drink

 

Drinking plenty of fluids may help break up congestion, moisten the throat, ease a dry cough and prevent dehydration.4-8 

It is important to stay hydrated, so drink plenty of fluids.5 Water, lemon water, coconut water, soft drinks or tea can help with rehydration.

 

Avoid caffeinated and alcoholic beverages as they can dehydrate you.6

2. Soup for the sick

 

Hot liquids, fruit juice, tea with lemon or soup not only help to moisten and soothe the upper airways, but they may also have a psychological benefit by providing a feeling of comfort.6,8-9

3. Get plenty of rest

 

Resting will help your body to fight the infection, so rest if you feel tired and sleep as much as you can.5

4. Humidify the air

 

Although there is no clinical evidence to support the benefit of humidifying the air, there is no harm in trying.10 It is possible that dry air may further irritate a sore throat and you might want to use a cool-air humidifier or vaporizer to eliminate dry air, or sit for several minutes in a steamy bathroom.6,8

5. Sweet pastilles or lozenges

 

Sucking on a sweet pastille or lozenge may also provide some relief from sore throat or throat irritation. Avoid giving to small children as they can cause choking.6,8

6. Nasal irrigation

 

A saline nasal spray can help break up congestion in the nose and remove excess mucus.7

7. Avoid irritants

 

Avoid smoking. Keep your home free from cigarette smoke and cleaning products that can irritate the throat.6-8

8. Try to avoid spreading the flu to others

 

In order to stop the flu from spreading to others, it is important to stay at home and away from work, school and other public places for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone. Most people feel better within a week of becoming infected with the flu virus. So, keep this in mind before seeing others.5,11

 

Also, remember to practice good hygiene. Always cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze and throw the tissue away after you use it. Wash your hands often with soap and water and use an alcohol-based hand rub afterwards.5,11

9. Seek relief from symptoms

 

Over-the-counter cold and flu medications can help relief flu symptoms.5
