It starts very inconspicuously. First, a light rhinitis, headache and a constant feeling of cold. Later, a subfebrile condition appears, and with time it turns into a high fever. Bone fractures, chills and sore throats appear.

Influenza, because we are talking about it, often underestimated and seemingly harmless, can have serious consequences. Hearing loss, acute bronchitis, pneumonia, sometimes tuberculosis are just a few of the side effects of untreated influenza.

Should influenza always be treated?

That is why it is so important to treat flu. It often happens that instead of visiting a doctor, we are treated with our tried and tested home-made methods. Who of us has not tried the first symptoms of hot milk with honey, butter and necessarily garlic, hot feather and warming ointment? From street billboards and TV commercials we are attacked with other super cures for flu and cold. After dangerous flu epidemics, vaccines have also become very popular. Not everyone knows, however, that you should not wait for the first flu symptoms, but vaccinate yourself already in autumn.

Sometimes, however, our methods are not enough, drugs advertised in such a way fail and then it is worth going to a doctor. And let’s remember that the best cure for flu and autumn colds is just the right dress, covered head, warm shoes and vitamins.
