Have had flu symptoms for 7 days

Patient: Have had flu symptoms for 7 days, now had headache for 24hrs and still sweating.

Doctor: You are most probably suffering from a viral flu. No treatment is needed other than tylenol for the fever and headache. The infection should subside on its own within the next 3-4 days. You may also take an NSAIDS. If your headache worsens or you develop vomiting, I would then suggest that you immediately consult your doctor or go to the ER. I wish you well, take care.
