MedlinePlus : 43 What is the flu? The flu, also called influenza, is a respiratory infection caused by viruses. Each year, millions of Americans get sick with the flu. Sometimes it causes mild illness. But it can also be serious or even deadly, especially for people over 65, newborn babies, and people with certain chronic illnesses. What causes the flu? The flu is caused by flu viruses that spread from person to person. When someone with the flu coughs, sneezes, or talks, they spray tiny droplets. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby. Less often, a person may get flu by touching a surface or object that has flu virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes. What are the symptoms of the flu? Symptoms of the flu come on suddenly and may include Fever or feeling feverish/chills Cough Sore throat Runny or stuffy nose Muscle or body aches Headaches Fatigue (tiredness) Some people may also have vomiting and diarrhea. This is more common in children. Sometimes people have trouble figuring out whether they have a cold or the flu. There are differences between them. The symptoms of a cold usually come on more slowly and are less severe than symptoms of the flu. Colds rarely cause a fever or headaches. Sometimes people say that they have a "flu" when they really have something else. For example, "stomach flu" isn't the flu; it's gastroenteritis. What other problems can the flu cause? Some people who get the flu will develop complications. Some of these complications can be serious or even life-threatening. They include Bronchitis Ear infection Sinus infection Pneumonia Inflammation of the heart (myocarditis), brain (encephalitis), or muscle tissues (myositis, rhabdomyolysis) The flu also can make chronic health problems worse. For example, people with asthma may have asthma attacks while they have flu. Certain people are more likely to have complications from the flu, including Adults 65 and older Pregnant women Children younger than 5 People with certain chronic health conditions, such as asthma, diabetes, and heart disease How is the flu diagnosed? To diagnose the flu, health care providers will first do a medical history and ask about your symptoms. There are several tests for the flu. For the tests, your provider will swipe the inside of your nose or the back of your throat with a swab. Then the swab will be tested for the flu virus. Some tests are quick and give results in 15-20 minutes. But these tests are not as accurate as other flu tests. These other tests can give you the results in one hour or several hours. What are the treatments for the flu? Most people with the flu recover on their own without medical care. People with mild cases of the flu should stay home and avoid contact with others, except to get medical care. But if you have symptoms of flu and are in a high risk group or are very sick or worried about your illness, contact your health care provider. You might need antiviral medicines to treat your flu. Antiviral medicines can make the illness milder and shorten the time you are sick. They also can prevent serious flu complications. They usually work best when you start taking them within 2 days of getting sick. Can the flu be prevented? The best way to prevent the flu is to get flu vaccine every year. But it's also important to have good health habits like covering your cough and washing your hands often. This can help stop the spread of germs and prevent the flu.

MalaCards based summary : Influenza, also known as flu, is related to stomatitis and severe acute respiratory syndrome, and has symptoms including fever, pruritus and snoring. An important gene associated with Influenza is IFITM3 (Interferon Induced Transmembrane Protein 3), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Innate Immune System and Transport of the SLBP independent Mature mRNA. The drugs Hops and Prednisolone phosphate have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include testes, t cells and lung.

Disease Ontology : 12 A viral infectious disease that results in infection, located in respiratory tract, has material basis in Influenzavirus A, has material basis in Influenzavirus B, or has material basis in Influenzavirus C, which are transmitted by droplet spread of oronasal secretions during coughing, sneezing, or talking from an infected person. It is a highly contagious disease that affects birds and mammals and has symptom chills, has symptom fever, has symptom sore throat, has symptom runny nose, has symptom muscle pains, has symptom severe headache, has symptom cough, and has symptom weakness.

CDC : 3 Influenza (flu) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. It can cause mild to severe illness. Serious outcomes of flu infection can result in hospitalization or death. Some people, such as older people, young children, and people with certain health conditions, are at high risk of serious flu complications. There are two main types of influenza (flu) virus: Types A and B. The influenza A and B viruses that routinely spread in people (human influenza viruses) are responsible for seasonal flu epidemics each year.

PubMed Health : 63 About flu: People often talk about having the flu (influenza) when they come down with a cold. Yet the course of these two illnesses is very different and they also typically have different signs and symptoms. Colds are much more common than the flu. They also start quite slowly, while the viruses that cause the flu strike quickly and cause more severe symptoms – even in people who are otherwise quite healthy. The flu makes you feel very ill quite suddenly. Colds don't usually cause any serious harm, and are often over within a week, with or without treatment. It is a good idea to see a doctor if you have the flu, and it may take some time before you fully recover. But colds and the flu do have one thing in common: The treatment for both focuses on relieving the symptoms. The only medicines that target the flu viruses directly can at most reduce the time you are ill. But a number of things can be done to avoid infection in the first place.

Drugs & Therapeutics for Influenza

PubMed Health treatment related to Influenza: 63

Many people turn to home remedies like chicken broth and herbal teas to relieve flu symptoms. And getting plenty to drink is also considered to be important. But there is no scientific proof that any of these things helps speed up recovery. So you don't necessarily need to rely on any of the remedies or to drink more fluids than you feel like. A number of freely available products like vitamin supplements or inhalation devices are marketed for the treatment of colds, flus and coughs. But there is no compelling evidence that they are effective against the flu. Painkillers such as acetaminophen (paracetamol), acetylsalicylic acid (ASA, the drug in medicines like Aspirin) and ibuprofen can relieve pain and lower fever. But children and teenagers should not take ASA because in rare cases this drug can cause a serious brain condition in these age groups. In addition to over-the-counter products, prescription-only medication is also available. The most common of these in Germany is oseltamivir (trade name: Tamiflu). Oseltamivir is prescription-only and needs to be taken within two days after the flu starts. It does not have any effect on the course of the flu infection if you have already had symptoms for longer. Some research suggests that oseltamivir could reduce the period of illness by up to one day. But it often causes nausea and vomiting. It is not clear that it helps to prevent complications. Some people think that antibiotics will help in the treatment of flu. But antibiotics are only effective against bacteria, not against viruses. So antibiotics only help if you have a bacterial infection of the airways as well as a viral infection. Unless there are signs of bacterial infection, there is no point in taking antibiotics.
