Q.

Could I have the flu for 7 days?

After I eat rice and broth its hard to swallow and my mouth became very dry. Is this a condition of the flu?

Hi Dee

A sore throat can be one of the symptoms of the flu, but usually, it is combined with a runny nose, fever and a cough. If you are still ill after seven days without feeling better, then please rather go to the doctor. Good luck and I hope that you feel better soon.
