Influenza Notice

Treating Flu There are influenza antiviral drugs that can be used to treat flu illness. These are by prescription only. Their effectiveness is greatest if started within the first 48 hours of the illness. Please follow up with a doctor right away if you think your child has the flu. People also need other supports to feel better and recover: Rest, fluids, fever and pain control with over the counter medicines like acetaminophen or ibuprofen. (However, children should never use aspirin).
