Our expert says:
Flu is a viral infection, so unless you have a secondary bacterial infection, antibiotics will not help to clear this up. It may help to take an immunebooster like immunochoice or viral choice c or echinacea, and an antihistamine like Deselex for a week or so. For the sore body you can take something like Mypaid or Disprin. If you still have fever, shortness of breath, headache and sore muscles, you may need to go back to your doctor for antiviral medication.
