The Best Way To Keep Flu Away

The best way to keep the flu away is by getting a flu vaccine, but if you can’t do that, there are other ways to help prevent the virus from affecting your life. This blog post will discuss how to avoid catching the flu and what symptoms you should be looking out for if you already have it.

-Wash your hands regularly and often, especially before you eat. This is one of the most effective ways to avoid getting sick.

-Avoid touching your face. The flu virus can enter your body through your eyes, nose, or mouth.

-Stay warm and dry. Staying in a cold, wet environment will make you more susceptible to getting sick.

-Drink plenty of fluids. Dehydration can make you more susceptible to the flu virus.

-Stay away from sick people. The best way to avoid getting the flu is to stay away from people who are already sick.

If you do start feeling sick, there are a few things you need to be on the lookout for:

-A sudden fever of 100° or higher that lasts a few days. You might also experience chills, headache, and body aches.

-Coughing, sneezing, sore throat issues with no other symptoms like a runny nose or fatigue. A rash may also develop.

-Difficulty breathing, chest congestion, and excessive mucus. You might start feeling better for a day or two before getting worse again.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s best to see your doctor as soon as possible. They will be able to give you the best advice on how to treat the flu and may prescribe you with antiviral medication. It’s also important to note that pregnant women, young children, and people with chronic health conditions are more susceptible to developing serious complications from the flu virus, so it is especially important for them to get vaccinated if they can’t avoid getting sick.
