    Our San Ramon, CA, specialists recommend preventive measures and routine vaccinations to avoid flu throughout the year.

    Symptoms of Flu

    The initial symptoms of the flu are often mistaken for the common cold. Although they may feel similar, the symptoms of a cold develop slowly, while the flu has a rapid onset. Common symptoms of the flu include:

    • Fever
    • Chills
    • Dry, persistent cough
    • Body ache
    • Tiredness
    • Headache
    • Stuffy or runny nose
    • Sore throat
    • Shortness of breath
    • Eye pain

    Children suffering from the flu may also develop diarrhea or vomiting. If you or a family member experiences severe flu symptoms, consult with our San Ramon specialists for appropriate treatment.

    How Is Flu Treated at Our Clinic

    In most cases, the symptoms of flu last for 10 to 14 days. After this period, they resolve on their own without any medications. You will need rest and plenty of fluids to achieve a proper and speedy recovery.

    However, if you have serious symptoms such as shortness of breath, severe cough, or chest pain, we will prescribe antiviral medications to improve your health.

    While the symptoms of flu last, it is important to wear a mask to avoid the risk of spreading the disease. Avoid going to crowded places until you recover completely.

    Flu Vaccination in San Ramon, CA

    The best way to prevent this disease is to get the flu vaccine every year. Flu vaccinations build your immunity against the common flu strains and fight off the virus before you fall sick. Since the influenza virus mutates every year, it is important to get flu vaccines every year.

    You can also prevent the flu by washing your hands regularly. If you are living or working in a place with many residents, consider wearing a mask and sharing personal items like toothbrushes or food utensils.
