The flu is a common viral infection that attacks the lungs, nose, and throat. Young children, the elderly, pregnant women, and people with chronic illness or weakened immune systems are at high risk.
Symptoms are fever, chills, muscle pain, cough, congestion, runny nose, headache, and fatigue.
Treatment for the flu consists mainly of rest and rehydrating to allow the body to fight the infection on its own. Non-prescription anti-inflammatory pain relievers can help relieve symptoms. An annual vaccine can also prevent influenza and limit complications from it.
