About Flu

Flu (or Influenza) is different from the common cold. The two illnesses share some symptoms, such as coughing and a sore throat, but they are caused by different viruses. Flu can be much more serious than a cold. People who are generally fit and healthy usually recover from flu without having to see a doctor, although this may take several days and you may have to spend much of that time in bed.

You should see a GP if you think you have flu and you:

  • are aged 65 or over
  • are pregnant
  • have a long-term medical condition like heart disease, diabetes, asthma or lung disease
  • have a weakened immune system
  • have a very high fever as well as abdominal or chest pain, an unusually severe headache or any other symptoms that concern you
