Flu Symptoms

Flu Symptoms

People often have a combination of several flu symptoms. Flu sufferers typically complain of feeling very unwell and low on energy. The result can be that they have to spend several days resting in bed.

The flu develops suddenly – usually one or two days after contact with the virus. Symptoms may include:

  • Fever
  • Coughing
  • Sore throat
  • Stuffy nose
  • Aching muscles and joints
  • Headache
  • Chills
  • Tiredness/exhaustion
  • General feeling of being unwell
  • Weakness
  • Lack of appetite
  • Runny or blocked nose - more common in children than adults

Symptoms can persist anywhere from three days to several weeks. It’s a good idea to keep a record of your temperature, fluid intake, and the length and severity of your symptoms – this will help when discussing your symptoms with your health professional.

Did you know?

The symptoms of flu and colds are similar, probably because they’re both viral illnesses affecting the respiratory system. However, flu symptoms come on suddenly, whereas cold symptoms take longer to develop.

Everyday Tissues

For many people, our hands are probably our most frequently used contact point. They're great for grabbing, catching, touching and generally moving things around, but this also means they're also prone to picking up mess, muck and germs. And that's fine, as long as you're prepared. Thankfully, we've got your back (or rather your nose and hands) with products to help keep you spick and span.
