Body aches and pain are more difficult to treat without medication. Getting plenty of rest will help shorten the duration of these symptoms. However, if you want to relieve your pain, you can take non-prescription medications such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen, while validating with your pharmacist if these products are right for you.
The treatments recommended above may help alleviate the symptoms, but they won’t make you any less contagious. It’s always best to stay home to avoid infecting your friends and co-workers.
That being said, contact your pharmacist for recommendations for your symptoms.
Note : Generally, the flu is treated at home. However, in some cases involving persons at higher risk of complications, it is recommended to consult a doctor.
