Symptoms of Swine Flu

Sit down and have a calm conversation about H1N1 symptoms and how the virus spreads. Explain that primary symptoms include fever, sore throat, and cough. Some people also have a runny or stuffy nose, fatigue, body aches, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Swine flu spreads through contact with infected people, especially those who are coughing or sneezing. Flu can also live on countertops, computer keyboards, and other surfaces for two to eight hours. That's why hand-washing is so important.

Treatment for Swine Flu 

  • Wash your hands often with soap and running water, especially after coming in from the outside, before eating and fixing food, and after using the bathroom. And take your time. 
  • Each wash should last about 30 seconds. With young children, a good trick to be sure they wash long enough is to sing the ABC song or Happy Birthday twice. If you're not near a faucet, rub hands with an alcohol-based sanitizer.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. No tissue at hand? Cough or sneeze into your sleeve.
  • Teach kids to keep their hands out of their eyes, nose, and mouth. You too.
