What is The Flu?

Influenza, more commonly known as the flu or trangkaso, is a contagious infection caused by viruses. This viral infection spreads through communities quickly, easily passing from one person to another through coughing, sneezing, or even talking.

The parts of the body affected by the flu are the upper respiratory system, including the nose, throat, and lungs. Still, this infection can also have systemic effects on the entire body. Signs and symptoms of the flu include the following:

  • Fever
  • Nasal Congestion
  • Sore Throat
  • Dry Cough
  • Headaches and muscle aches

People of all ages can catch the flu. However, young children, pregnant women, older adults, and those with chronic health conditions are more susceptible to severe symptoms and other complications.

What To Do When You Have The Flu

When the flu strikes, it can leave us feeling tired and drained. Luckily, mild flu symptoms often go away on their own. Taking a careful approach can help with a speedy recovery and safeguard your loved ones and your community.

Here are a few ways to help you manage your symptoms on your road to recovery:

Get Lots of Rest

Ample rest by staying home is crucial when you have the flu. Resting allows your immune system to focus on fighting the virus, promoting a speedier recovery and helping you regain energy. Giving your body the time it needs means prioritizing sleep and avoiding overexertion.

Staying off work or school to rest at home also prevents the flu from spreading further into your community.

Drink Plenty of Fluids

Drinking enough fluids can thin out mucus, replenish lost fluids, and prevent dehydration. Aside from water, warm beverages like tea and soups can also soothe the itchy feeling of a sore throat.

Take a Warm bath

Taking a warm bath or shower can provide soothing relief when you have the flu. The warm water helps temporarily relieve congestion, relieve body aches, and promote a sense of overall relaxation.

Elevate Your Head

If you have a clogged nose from the flu, you may have difficulty breathing. Elevating your head can help you alleviate congestion and breathe more easily, especially when you have difficulty sleeping at night. To achieve this, use a foam wedge or stack two or more pillows on top of each other on your bed. This elevated position enhances your comfort, allowing you to rest more effectively.

Do note that flu symptoms and how mild or severe they are can vary from person to person. Those who are more at risk of complications must consult with their doctor, as they may need to take antiviral treatment. If you are experiencing severe flu-like symptoms, consult a healthcare professional for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Explore Over-the-counter Medicine

Over-the-counter medicine, such as analgesics and antipyretics, can be beneficial for treating flu symptoms. Taking paracetamol for muscle pain, headaches, and fever can make you feel more comfortable. Decongestants can address the stuffy feeling of a clogged nose.

Nasatapp Flu is your triple action relief against symptoms of the flu. This medicine is an all-in-one solution that targets fever, body pain, clogged and runny noses, and other flu symptoms.

Tips to Defend Against the Flu

Preventing the flu is all about being proactive and taking simple yet effective steps to stay healthy. Here are recommendations you and your loved ones can consider to protect yourselves against the flu:

Get Vaccinated

Getting the flu vaccine each year is vital because the flu virus is known for its ability to change and evolve. The flu vaccine is carefully updated to match the circulating strains, ensuring that your family has the best possible protection against the changing flu viruses.

Practice Good Hygiene

Aside from the vaccine, one effective way to prevent the spread of the flu is by practicing good hygiene. Regularly washing your hands with soap and water or using a hand sanitizer keeps your hands clean and free from the virus. Doing this before eating meals and after using the restroom is important.

In addition, covering one’s mouth and nose with a tissue or your elbow when sneezing or coughing to prevent spreading germs to others.

Boost Your Immune System

A strong immune system acts as a shield against various illnesses, including the flu. One way to strengthen your immunity is to eat a healthy, balanced diet and consider supplementing with vitamins and minerals if advised by your healthcare provider.

Remember, while these tips can significantly reduce the risk of flu transmission, they are not foolproof. If you do develop flu-like symptoms, consult with a healthcare professional for appropriate guidance.

The flu may seem like an ordinary illness because of its common symptoms and seasonality, but its impact should not be underestimated. By making informed choices that prioritize your health, you can significantly reduce the impact of the flu on your life and those around you. With each preventive action and a helping hand from your Nurturemed family, know that you are taking one big step towards a healthier, flu-free season every year. — (Nurturemed)
