Symptoms may appear within 1-2 days after you’re infected and can range from mild to severe. Otherwise healthy individuals will recover without complications in 1-2 days, but occasionally symptoms may persist as long as 10 days.
Frequent hand-washing and avoiding contaminated water and foods are your best defense. Tylenol can be used to treat fever and is less upsetting to the stomach than other antipyretics. Gravol can be used to treat nausea and
vomiting, while Imodium can slow down diarrhea. Oral rehydration salts like Gastrolyte are important to help prevent dehydration. It is important to note that the flu shot does not cover this type of infection.
