I an not sure if I have the flu

Patient : I an not sure if I have the flue or a cold my symptoms are runny nose, fatigue, minor body ache, coughing, not much of an apitite, and low fever that Is on and off
Doctor :   Hello, Thanks for the query. Looks like there is viral fever, more like a flu. Plenty of oral fluids and having a bl and diet would surely help. Take sufficient rest and sleep for at least 8 hours a day. You may take paracetamol for pain and fever. Drink lots of water and fresh juices. Hope this helped. Regards
