What are the Symptoms of Flu?

Actually all types of flu have similar symptoms. And the symptoms of flu and common cold are almost similar, but the flu tends to be more severe. Flu symptoms generally appear 1 to 4 days after exposure to the virus.

Common symptoms of the flu include chills, fever (100°F or greater), headache, muscle aches, tiredness, cough and runny nose (mostly in kids). If you have anyone of these symptoms, you can have flue disease. And it's a viral disease. As it transfers from one to another with flu cough or sneeze. 

But what is swine flu? What are the symptoms of H1N1 flue? A new strain of H1N1 swine flu emerged in April 2009. This type of flue contains a combination of swine, avian, and human influenza viruses. The swine flu had mainly affected people who had direct contact with pigs in the past. But this new H1N1 swine flu virus also spread among people who haven't been near pigs. This flu was first spread in Mexico and after that it spreads into different countries and continents. 

Swine flu is a contagious and it spreads in the same way as the seasonal flu. A person with swine flu can be contagious for 7 days and children can be contagious for as long as 10 days. Swine flu symptoms include cough, fever, headache, chills, sore throat, stuffy or runny nose, nausea and vomiting, muscle aches and tiredness.

While there are drugs and other immunization methods of containing the flu, it seems to be getting resistant to cures. The only thing that can be done is to get vaccinated and take antiviral drugs. Other than that avoiding substandard pork is mandatory if you want to avoid contracting swine flu.
