Number one, I'm not a doctor, but I have been sick for two weeks.
1) When you feel the flu coming on...get to the doctor. Home remedy stuff will prolong your misery.
2) Drink a boatload of water.
3) wash your hands six or seven times a day.
4) Keep your hands away from your face....this will help.
It killed me...glad to be back in the healthy world.
PS: if you are sick stay home
