Here's how long it might affect you. - From HelloGiggles
But sometimes the flu still comes and puts us down for the count, no matter what we do to avoid it.
And with the 2018 flu season hitting especially hard, it’s best to know upfront how long the flu might last once you’re infected.
While getting the flu shot and having a healthy immune system — and supplementing regular meds with all-natural home remedies — might help lessen the severity and duration of your illness, you’ll still have to deal with symptoms like fever, stomach issues (including nausea and diarrhea — yuck!), body aches, and fatigue.
Even after the majority of symptoms go away, you may still feel tired and generally run-down for awhile after that.
And if you’re not sick, wash your hands and avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth when you’re out and about — that’s a main way germs are spread.
