Know the F.A.C.T.S.

Flu symptoms can be mild or severe, and can come on suddenly — be sure you know your flu treatment options so you can be prepared. Symptoms generally appear 1 to 4 days after exposure to the virus.

Symptoms of the flu: chills, fever, aches, and tiredness

Common flu symptoms include:

  • Fever (100°F or greater)
  • Headache
  • Muscle aches
  • Chills
  • Tiredness
  • Cough
  • Runny nose (more common in children than adults)

If you have one or more of these
symptoms, it could be the flu. Don't wait for things to get worse. Your doctor can provide you with information about prescription flu medicines.

Prescription flu medicines can shorten the duration of the flu if taken within 48 hours of first symptoms.

If you think your child may have the flu, your doctor may be able to provide you with information about prescription flu medicines that are approved for children.
