Für die saisonale Influenza ist der Mensch das einzige Reservoir und damit die einzige Infektionsquelle. Ansteckend sind vor allem Erkrankte während der ersten 4-5 Tage, da sie dann große Mengen von Viren aushusten. Bei Kindern, schwer Erkrankten und insbesondere bei stark Abwehrgeschwächten kann die Ausscheidung von Viren auch länger anhalten (bis zu 2 Wochen, in Einzelfällen mehrere Monate). Eine Ausscheidung ist auch schon 1-2 Tage vor Symptombeginn möglich.

Die Übertragung von Influenzaviren erfolgt überwiegend durch Tröpfchen, die insbesondere beim Husten oder Niesen entstehen und über eine geringe Distanz auf die Schleimhäute der Atemwege von

Kontaktpersonen gelangen können. Selbst beim normalen Atmen oder Sprechen können solche infektiöse Tröpfchen entstehen und länger in der Luft schweben. Darüber hinaus ist eine Übertragung auch durch direkten Kontakt der Hände zu Oberflächen, die mit virushaltigen Sekreten kontaminiert sind, und anschließendem Hand-Mund-/Hand-Nasen-Kontakt möglich (z.B. durch Händeschütteln).

Die Inkubationszeit, also die Zeit von der Infektion bis zum Ausbruch der ersten Krankheitsanzeichen, beträgt bei der Grippe meist nur ein bis zwei Tage. Typisch für eine Influenza ist der plötzliche Beginn der Erkrankung Die Hauptsymptome sind:

  • hohes Fieber bis zu 41°C, häufig mit Frösteln
  • trockener Husten und Heiserkeit
  • Halsschmerzen
  • Kopf- und Gliederschmerzen
  • schweres Krankheitsgefühl

Weitere häufige Symptome sind allgemeine Schwäche, Appetitlosigkeit, Schweißausbrüche, Schnupfen und Augenschmerzen. In einigen Fällen können auch Schüttelfrost, Lichtscheu und Geräuschempfindlichkeit hinzukommen. Bei einem Teil der Patienten liegt auch eine Beteiligung des Magen-/Darmtrakts vor mit Übelkeit/Erbrechen und Durchfall.

Allerdings können auch viele weitere, meist virale Atemwegserreger einige dieser Symptome verursachen. Gerade anfangs kann man die Grippe leicht mit einer Erkältung verwechseln, für die ebenfalls mehrheitlich Viren verantwortlich sind. Der Unterschied zwischen Influenza und Erkältung zeigt sich meist im Verlauf und in der Schwere der Erkrankung (siehe Unterschiede zwischen Grippe und Erkältung). Abhängig von einer vorbestehenden Immunität, vorliegenden Grunderkrankungen aber auch von der individuellen Konstitution erkranken nicht alle Influenza-Infizierten mit den typischen Symptomen. Als Faustregel kann gelten, dass es bei etwa einem Drittel der Infektionen zu einem hochfieberhaften, einem weiteren Drittel zu einem leichteren und dem letzten Drittel zu einem Verlauf ohne Symptome kommt.

Das hohe Fieber dauert meist 3 bis 4 Tage. Ein erneuter Fieberanstieg kann auf den Beginn einer zusätzlichen bakteriellen Infektion (Superinfektion) der Atemwege hinweisen. Die Krankheitsdauer liegt in der Regel bei 5 bis 7 Tagen, kann im Einzelfall jedoch auch deutlich länger sein, insbesondere bei Komplikationen und Risikofaktoren. Der quälende Reizhusten hält nicht selten über Wochen an. Einige Patienten leiden noch Wochen nach Abklingen einer Influenza an einer ausgeprägten allgemeinen Leistungsschwäche, Appetitlosigkeit und Unwohlsein bis hin zur Depression. Schwerwiegende Komplikationen treten zwar nur bei einem kleinen Teil aller Infizierten auf, in Anbetracht der meist sehr großen Zahl von Erkrankten während der jährlichen Grippesaison sind sie dennoch relativ häufig.

Dizziness, a feeling of being off balance or lightheaded, is a common symptom in people with MS. A less common symptom for people with MS is vertigo, which causes the sensation that they or their surroundings are spinning or that the ground suddenly rushes upwards. Vertigo can be exacerbated by lying down or inclining one’s head or in situations where vision cannot be used, such as in a darkened room.

The symptoms of dizziness and vertigo result from lesions (damaged areas) on the nerve pathways responsible for transmitting input from the inner ear to the brain for the purpose of maintaining balance or equilibrium. Damage to the eighth cranial nerve, which serves both the balance (vestibular) and acoustic processes of the ear, can cause dizziness or vertigo.

If dizziness or vertigo become significant problems for you or continue for a long time, your doctor may be able to give you a medication to help resolve the symptom.

Medications for treating motion sickness, including antihistamines such as Antivert ® (meclizine), Dramamine® (dimenhydrinate), and Benadryl (diphenhydramine), may be useful, as well as select drugs in the benzodiazepine family, including Valium (diazepam), Klonopin (clonazepam), Ativan (lorazepam), and Xanax (alprazolam). A drawback with both antihistamine and benzodiazepine medications is that they can make you feel drowsy. So, you should work with your doctor to find the lowest dosage that resolves your symptoms.

Flu season killing record number of older Americans, CDC says

Jump to text This year’s especially grim flu season has been sickening and killing a very high.
Next story in Cold and flu Zinc may shorten the common cold

>>> some good news tonight about the nasty flu season we've been enduring in this country. cdc says flu activity is down. we have probably, probably seen the worst of the season. flu activity was listed as widespread this week. 38 states at least down from 42 states last week. news remains bad for the elderly, however, with more than 50% of hospitalizations in patients over

This year’s especially grim flu season has been sickening and killing a very high number of people over 65, federal officials report -- even people who consider themselves relatively healthy and not frail.

Rates of women who are opting for preventive mastectomies, such as Angeline Jolie, have increased by an estimated 50 percent in recent years, experts say. But many doctors are puzzled because the operation doesn't carry a 100 percent guarantee, it's major surgery -- and women have other options, from a once-a-day pill to careful monitoring.

The latest flu statistics show that while the season is leveling off, it’s still a bad one for seniors.

“The numbers for hospitalizations are extremely high in the elderly. In fact, they are the highest we have had since surveillance began in 2005,” says Dr. Lyn Finelli, a flu expert at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “The deaths are way over the epidemic threshold. We are very concerned about the elderly this year", she added in a telephone interview.

“The elderly rates are many, many times the rates in other age groups.”

Flu statistics show the virus is still widespread in 38 states. Nine percent of reported deaths were due to flu and pneumonia, still above what’s considered an epidemic. And 14 more children died of flu last week, bringing the total this year to 59.

It’s still especially bad in the midwest and west, although infections are beginning to wane in the east. Dr. Jeff Duchin, an epidemiologist and flu expert at the University of Washington in Seattle, says he’s seen the impact.

“We have had a record in long term-care facility outbreaks this year,” Duchin, who is also a spokesman for the Infectious Diseases Society of America, said in a telephone interview.

“County emergency department reports are showing us higher prevalence of disease among older folks compared to what we had seen in recent years.”

CDC said people over 65 need to make sure they see a doctor right away if they get flu-like symptoms. That’s because quick treatment with antivirals can help prevent serious illness.

“We see unnecessary delays in treatment, particularly in the elderly,” Duchin said. “We need to recognize these cases promptly so the medications can be started promptly.”

Antiviral drugs such as Tamiflu only work well when given within a day or two of symptoms starting.

People 65 and older may not consider themselves at higher risk, Finelli says. But they need to: Their immune systems are less robust from those of younger people and they are still more vulnerable.

“Even if they are super-fit maybe they have other underlying conditions that put them at higher risk for the flu, like pulmonary (lung) disease and cardiovascular disease and diabetes,” Finelli said.

A study published earlier this week showed that people over 65 have different types of antibodies from younger people. These immune system proteins recognize and attack invaders like germs and they are stimulated by vaccines.

Si vos symptômes s’aggravent ou ne s’améliorent pas après 7 jours, vous devez également consulter un médecin le jour même.

Vous pouvez obtenir une consultation le jour même ou le lendemain dans une ressource près de chez vous. Pour en savoir plus ou pour trouver une de ces ressources, consultez la page Trouver une ressource qui offre de la consultation médicale le jour même ou le lendemain.

Vous devez vous rendre immédiatement à l’urgence si vous avez des symptômes de la grippe et que vous présentez aussi l’un des symptômes suivants:

  • difficulté à respirer qui persiste ou qui augmente;
  • lèvres bleues;
  • douleur intense à la poitrine;
  • douleur intense à la tête qui persiste ou qui augmente;
  • somnolence, difficulté à rester éveillé, faiblesse;
  • confusion, désorientation;
  • convulsions (le corps se raidit et les muscles se contractent de façon saccadée et involontaire);
  • absence d’urine depuis 12 heures, soif intense.

Si votre bébé de moins de 3 mois a de la fièvre, amenez-le à l’urgence rapidement.

Si votre enfant a de la fièvre et qu’il semble très malade, qu’il manque d’énergie et qu’il refuse de jouer, amenez-le consulter un médecin rapidement ou appelez Info-Santé 811.

Si vous avez besoin d’aide immédiate pour vous rendre à l’urgence, composez le 9-1-1.

Certaines situations nécessitent l’évaluation d’une infirmière, qui pourra vous fournir des conseils spécifiques concernant votre situation. Elle pourra aussi vous indiquer si vous devriez consulter un médecin rapidement ou non.

Vous devriez donc appeler Info-Santé 811 si vous-même ou votre enfant êtes dans l’une des situations suivantes:

  • vous êtes essoufflé;
  • vous avez de la difficulté à respirer;
  • vous ne savez pas si vous devez consulter un médecin

La plupart des personnes en bonne santé guérissent de la grippe par elles-mêmes au bout de 5 à 7 jours. Il faut bien se reposer et se nourrir selon son appétit.

La toux et la fatigue peuvent toutefois durer jusqu’à 2 semaines, et même plus.

Vous pouvez soulager les symptômes de la grippe en prenant les mesures suivantes:

Si vous avez de la fièvre, votre corps perd naturellement beaucoup de liquide, surtout par la transpiration. Il est donc important de boire beaucoup et souvent.

  • Buvez de préférence des liquides froids ou chauds: eau, lait, jus, bouillon.
  • Évitez les boissons alcoolisées ou contenant de la caféine comme le café, le thé et les boissons énergisantes. Comme ces boissons font uriner, elles font augmenter la perte de liquide.

En l’absence de complications ou de facteurs de risque de complications, le traitement de la grippe ne nécessite pas de médicaments prescrits. Toutefois, pour soulager la fièvre et la douleur, vous pouvez prendre des médicaments offerts en vente libre comme l’acétaminophène, par exemple du Tylenol MD, ou l’ibuprofène, par exemple de l'Advil MD.

Fever seizures can be frightening but they are not usually harmful to the child and do not cause long-term problems, such as brain damage, mental retardation, or learning problems.

M., I am going through the EXACT same thing with my 17 month old right now. He has had the flu for 10 days now with a fever for the majority of that time. I've been alternating Motrin and Tylenol and it brings the fever back down to normal but it's been anywhere between 102 and 103. Each day is getting better and we have to give less and less medication. I think we've kicked the fever today but like I said it's been 10 days. We took him in when it had been a week because the fever came back and was around 103 again and I was a nutcase because I thought it was something worse. They checked him for pnemonia and ear infections and everything else and he was okay. This strain of the flu is just horrible. I had it as well and I got a fever and it broke three different times. Its been two weeks for me and I'm still coughing. Our pediatrician told me that children this age get it way worse and for a lot longer than we do. Keep her hydrated. Pedialyte has worked well for us. I am sleeping with him and we have the mattress elevated and a humidifier in the room. Hang in there you're doing everything right. Use your mommy instinct, you know when something is not right. Take her in if you're too worried. Stear clear of the ER, if you can. Its full of germs that she doesn't need to catch on top of what she's already go though. It's so difficult to watch your baby suffer like this, I know. IT's been the longest week and a half of my life and I feel so helpless. Fortunately it won't last forever (although it feels like it). Good luck and hopefully our children will get well soon!

have you had your doctor check to see if she has a urinary tract infection?

I really wouldn't worry yet. A temperature of 103 is really not that high and means her body is trying to fight an infection (usually viral). The increase in body temperature makes the environment unfriendly for the infection, which is what you want. The vast majority of fevers are caused by viral infection and last no longer than 3 days. If the temperature gets to 105 then it could be bacterial. Fevers cause no harm, such as brain damage, when it is less than 107. Fortunately, the brain's thermostat keeps untreated fevers resulting from infection below 106. If she has convulsions, these are generally harmless (although very scary), but there is a need to rule out a more serious condition (especially meningitis).
You do need to see a doctor if:
a. the fever gets above 105
b. if it gets hard to wake him up
c. if her neck gets stiff (associated with meningitis)
d. she starts getting convulsions
See a doctor within 24 hrs:
a. the fever gets above 104
b. burning or pain with urination
c. if the fever "breaks" and then returns within 24 hrs
d. the fever lasts for longer than 3 days
The best thing you can do for her is to try and make her comfortable. Make sure he is getting liquids. Boil a chicken with lots of vegetables and feed him the strained broth. Don't use broth you buy at the store. It's really not a problem that he doesn't have an appetite, but he does need fluids.

DON'T GIVE HER ASPIRIN. Several studies have linked aspirin and viral illnesses with Reye syndrome.

If you have to give her anything give her acetaminophen. This should reduce the fever by 1-2 degrees in a couple of hours. Keep in mind though that the fever is helping her fight the infection, so why try to help the enemy?

Good luck and I hope he feels better soon.

Most of the info above comes from "Current Pediatric Diagnosis & Treatment" by Hay, Hayward, Levin, and Sondheimer 15th Edition.

I am sorry to hear your daughter is ill. When I worked at Spears Chiropractor Hospital many years ago we would take Rubbing Alcohol & rub under their armpits & between their thighs with it. It did bring down their fever. I was working in the Pediatric Floor at the time.
C.

I'm NOT a Dr. I'd suggest you go to a second pediatrician if you don't like what yours has to say.

However, what our Dr. told us was that as long as it's not a constant temp for days and it does go down(night or day) that it's ok and just helping her get rid of the infection. As far as it being high at night, we had a Dr. who also told us to make sure not to overdress them. that they aren't covered in tons of covers.

I think you're totally sane to be nervous. what parent wouldn't be - and feel free to go to the Dr. more (rather than less). I had a pediatrician tell me a LONG time ago that mother's instinct is often much better than Dr's. So if you're really really worried go in and insist on even seeing another Dr.

Cold symptoms are unpleasant but are usually milder than the flu. They include:

Read more about how to tell if you have a cold or the flu.

If you are mildly ill, stay home and avoid contact with other people until your symptoms are gone. This will help prevent the spread of the virus.

If you are a person at high risk of flu-related complications, contact your health care provider. Tell them about your symptoms.

See a health care provider immediately if you develop any of these symptoms:

  • shortness of breath
  • fast or trouble breathing
  • pain in your chest
  • blueish or grey skin colour
  • bloody or coloured mucous in your mouth or spit
  • sudden dizziness or confusion
  • severe or ongoing vomiting
  • a high fever (39°C and above) that lasts more than 3 days
  • low blood pressure

Tell your health care provider about your flu symptoms over the phone before your appointment. That way, they can arrange to see you without exposing other people to the virus.

Also see a health care provider if you are caring for a child who is sick with the flu and is:

  • not drinking or eating as usual
  • not waking up or interacting with others
  • irritable (not wanting to play or be held)

Grippe

"Erkältung" (grippaler Infekt)

plötzliches Fieber von mindestens 38,5°C

langsam ansteigendes oder gar kein Fieber

Fieber meist länger als drei Tage anhaltend

Fieber häufig nur kurzzeitig

leichtes bis mittelschweres Krankheitsgefühl

häufig Übelkeit, Erbrechen, Durchfall

keine Magen-Darm-Probleme oder leichte Übelkeit

danach häufig anhaltende Leistungsschwäche

danach schnell wieder leistungsfähig

Die häufigsten Grippeanzeichen sind hohes Fieber, Schüttelfrost und ein ausgeprägtes Krankheitsgefühl. Oft tritt bei Erkrankten auch ein trockener Reizhusten auf. Hier finden Sie alle möglichen Grippesymptome im Überblick:

  • hohes Fieber
  • Schüttelfrost
  • Abgeschlagenheit
  • trockener Reizhusten
  • seltener Husten mit zähem, teils blutigem Auswurf
  • Schnupfen
  • Halsschmerzen
  • Rachenentzündung
  • Bindehautentzündung
  • Magen-Darm-Beschwerden wie Übelkeit, Erbrechen, Durchfall
  • Kopfschmerzen
  • Sensibilität gegenüber hellem Licht (Photophobie)
  • aufgedunsenes Gesicht
  • Glieder- und Muskelschmerzen

Influenza-Viren verursachen aber nicht bei jedem Menschen typische Symptome. Sie können sich zwar schnell verbreiten und vermehren, lösen aber oftmals nur geringe Beschwerden aus. Dann werden zum Beispiel Grippe-Kopfschmerzen als Migräne gedeutet oder krankheitsbedingte Abgeschlagenheit als berufsbedingte Erschöpfung.

Poisoning is most often due to contaminated food or water. Arsenic is a natural compound that occurs in the soil, sometimes in dangerously high concentrations. Many cities and municipalities filter and test their water, but not all do; people who drink from private, particularly old, wells may also be at risk. Drinking only filtered, tested water is a good way to rule out this possibility. In rarer cases, people are intentionally poisoned, usually by a caretaker or someone else with direct access to food and water supply. Anyone who suspects intentional tampering should seek help from local authorities. Arsenic poisoning isn’t always fatal, but it can have life-altering consequences if left untreated for long periods of time.

43) To the lady that said she can not think of anyone who would want to hurt her. My own sister.

41) What poison acts slowly? I have been had tummy problems off and on for over a year now. I've been to the ER and the doctor never found an issue, although for the last 4 months not hardly a day goes by that I am not ill?

I suspect I am being given something, but what, I have no idea.

40) If you believe someone is poisoning you, there is an easy test. When he pours coffee for you and him, switch cups on him.

39) Are you people serious? I never dreamed this kind of thing was so widespread!

The reason that I'm here is because, I just read about that doctor whose trial is going on about him poisoning his wife with cyanide! That always piques my interest, because I truly believe my mother was murdered years ago by a con artist (his ex-wife and their daughter) that she married, but I could never prove anything because, I didn't know what type of poison he used.

It's a very long story, but it involved a substantial amount of money and property and as soon as the property was paid off, he talked my mother into purchasing a pre-need plan (for her burial plot and funeral) and within less than a year she was suddenly diagnosed with breast cancer! All the years before she'd been as healthy as a horse, with no health problems at all! Anyway, she died a few years later and I knew he had done something to hasten her death so, he could get all the money and property, which he did!

It has taken a great toll on me not being able to get any help or be able to prove anything, but what is still disturbing is how her skin had turned yellowish with tiny purple dots after she died (along with some other similar things described here). At the time, I can remember asking why her skin was so yellow and her husband repeatedly said it was from all of the carrot juice she'd been drinking! Then, years later, I learned that the purple dots are definitely tell-tale signs of someone being poisoned, yet nobody seemed to have even noticed!

Anyway, it turns out that even if I could find out for sure what he did to her, there's nothing I could do about it now, because he's dead and he passed down all of the money/assets to his evil daughter, who, ironically, had a husband that suddenly dropped dead of cancer too!

So, all of you who keep having strange things happen to you (especially, on a consistent basis), if I were you, I'd try to set him/her up with a hidden camera/video, a recorder, setting up the containers in a specific manner so that you can see if they've been moved/used, marking the levels of fluid, etc., as well as, saving some of the things like shampoo, drinks, etc. that you think have made you ill by pouring small amounts in bottles, so if necessary, they can be tested later.

    Neben der medikamentösen Therapie ist insbesondere bei Kindern eine ausreichende Flüssigkeitszufuhr wichtig. Um möglichst rasch wieder gesund zu werden, kann es helfen, die Schleimhäute feucht zu halten (zum Beispiel durch Inhalationen mit heißem Wasserdampf) und sich gesund zu ernähren. Außerdem braucht der Körper in dieser Situation viel Ruhe, um sich zu erholen. Dies hilft auch, möglichen Komplikationen vorzubeugen. Auf Alkohol und Rauchen sollte gänzlich verzichtet werden.

    Coworkers, visitors and pts are going to be fearful I’m sick. The above people are going to ask questions. So what do I tell them? Anything I tell them will reveal I have a medical condition which prevents me from getting the flu vaccine. Is this NOT a violation of MY privacy?

    Several on here have stated, “Well get vaccinated wear a mask or get out!” None of these policies were in place when I started working at the hospital. It would be different if they were. I love my job and my coworkers. I need my job. But am I willing to break one of the cardinal rules of pt privacy, even though its MY privacy?

    Becoming a hospital employee doesn’t make our privacy rights null and void.

    I cant take the flu shot due to a bad reaction. I’m a receptionist at a family practice office and we are corporate owned so we are required to get the shot or wear a mask. I wear glasses the mask causes my glasses to fog upi cant see the computer screen patients cant hear me on the phone. I cant stand to have my face covered. I really feel that my rights are violated. Its not aboyr protecting patients its about federal funds to these corporations. Why do I have to have the flu shot show proof or wear a mask? I can go to a hospital walk in go visit a patient and I dont need to show proof of a flu shot or wear a mask. Why are my rights and HIPPA privacy violated? Wearing a mask says your sick or it says I didnt have my flu shot. Its no ones business and the risk is mine and anyone else who can’t take or chooses not to take the shot.

    If a person, nurse or anyone, shows signs and symptoms of the flu, they are required to wear a mask while sick and infectious.
    Nowhere in logic is a mask indicated for a person who is NOT sick.
    Not getting vaccinated does not indicate infected.
    We have complete idiots running things. It is a HIPAA violation to say the least. Nurses can sue the hospitals for violating their HIPAA. There is a fine for violating HIPAA as well. It is ILLEGAL to force people to wear masks for 8-12 hours a day 4-6 months out of the year.
    Just because you are put in a position to make rules, does nto qualify you to make logical and ethical decisions that others will blindly follow like morons.
    For all the places where the mask is mandatory because the vaccination is mandatory, sign the paper stating
    HIPAA violation due to reasonable cause and not due to willful neglect is $1,000 per violation, with an annual maximum of $100,000 for repeat violations $50,000 per violation, with an annual maximum of $1.5 million.
    THAT’S a lot of money hospitals will be fined just to bully and harass employees.

    Doreen,
    Is this true? If this is a HIPAA violation, how can it be madated by healthcare facilities?

    To Marti and all the FLU vac pushers:
    1. The FLU vaccine is only 59-61% effective at best.
    2. Over 90% of the reported FLU cases that were reported were in fact people who had the FLU shot. via the CDC!
    3. It is only in droplet form. Meaning when I am at my desk in the hospital I work at, I am in NO WAY a threat to any patient. Even if I cough and sneeze at my desk, the droplets do not stay airborne.
    4. Poor hygiene will be more of a risk to patients.
    5. If we are mandating that us employees wear the mask, than I want every single patient, family member, visitor, vendor, and anyone else that did not get the FLU shot to wear a mask.
    6. People being forced to wear a mask every day for 8-12 hrs with no break are at risk to get ill by keeping their face moist. AKA a breeding ground for microbes.
    7. To MANDATE that every health care worker get the FLU shot is lest you forget: UNCONSTITUTIONAL.
    8. Again, FLU SHOT IS ONLY AROUND 60% effective. I know 10 staff members who got the vaccine and have been sick for 3 months straight since then.
    9. People with allergies to the FLU Vaccine being forced to wear a mask? Laughable at best.
    10. To force this upon us and brand us or black list us by putting stickers on our badges and than making those who CHOOSE not to get the vaccine, well in a word: Healthcare Communism.
    There is so many facts on how the FLU vac works and does not work.
    So get off your high horse Marti and all the others that think the FLU vac is a must and promise you won’t get sick. Its a choice. Oh wait, I don’t treat my honeybees either like a lot of others do. Damn, guess I am going against that policy to and should not be a beekeeper. Oh wait, I use only organics in my garden beds, dog gonnit, I guess I am a hippy and therefore am ignorant. This needs to stop.

    Over-the-counter remedies: Some antihistamines (the sedating varieties) can help cut down on the sneeze reflex. But most experts advise you to leave this fairly innocuous symptom untreated.

    The symptom: Chills and fever

    What it means: Chills are the way the body generates heat when it feels cold. They usually precede a fever, the body's method for defending itself by raising its temperature to fight a virus.

    When to worry: Call your doctor if your temperature rises above 102 degrees, if a fever persists for 72 hours without breaking, or if you also have shortness of breath or dizziness.

    Home remedies: To stay hydrated, sip your favorite liquids. Sponging off with warm water may also give you relief.

    Over-the-counter remedies: Acetaminophen (Tylenol), ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), or naproxen (Aleve) can lower a fever that's making you uncomfortable.

    The symptom: Sore throat

    Stomach Flu (Tummy Bug) – Signs, Symptoms and Treatment

    Infectious gastroenteritis is often referred to as a tummy bug or the stomach flu. It may be caused by bacteria, viruses or protozoa. The incubation period and duration of the infection may vary depending on the causative microorganism and the action of the microbe or toxins.

    The signs and symptoms of acute gastroenteritis should be discernible from other gastrointestinal conditions like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Proper management is crucial and most of the time, treatment for acute infectious gastroenteritis is only necessary in prolonged cases or immunocompromised patients.
