Nothing more than bed rest and plenty of fluids to treat the flu. But in some cases, your doctor may prescribe an antiviral medication, such as oseltamivir (Tamiflu) or zanamivir (Relenza).

Influenza is a respiratory disease caused by a virus. Viruses are the most common influenza H1N1 and H3N2, and influenza B. In 2009 in Mexico, there was an epidemic of this virus where classes were suspended work and activities outdoors to prevent the spread of H1N1 influenza . Although there are still cases of infection this year by the influenza virus, it is no longer considered an epidemic or a serious problem in Mexico because the virus is already known and has invented a flu vaccine that can prevent many severe cases and even deaths. Nevertheless, many people have not applied the vaccine and Dr. David Greenberg explained its importance and characteristics.
