How we can help

Receive expert flu treatment online

All influenza viruses— “flu” for short—are genetically related and belong to the Orthomyxoviridae family of viruses. The flu is an acute and highly contagious viral infection of the upper respiratory tract (nose, nasal cavities, and throat). The flu can be more dangerous than the common cold because of its ability to affect a person’s lungs and make breathing difficult in severe cases. Young children, older adults, those with chronic diseases, and those with weak immune systems are at higher risk of flu-related complications than the general population. Flu season in the United States generally lasts from about November to April and peaks sometime between December and February.

Flu symptoms typically come on quite suddenly, about one to four days after exposure to someone who is infected. Symptoms typically last five to seven days but occasionally up to two weeks, and often times have symptoms that are similar to other common ailments. Common symptoms of the flu include fever, chills, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, headaches, body aches, muscle cramps, fatigue, and sometimes diarrhea and vomiting. For people at high risk or with compromised immune systems, the flu can be dangerous or even fatal. If you or a loved one experiences severe symptoms such as trouble breathing, dizziness, seizures, high fever (above 104°F), or pneumonia, seek emergency medical care immediately.

There are four main types of influenza viruses: A, B, C, and D. Influenza Types A and B are by far the most common types responsible for seasonal flu outbreaks in the U.S. Each year’s flu vaccine may differ slightly depending on the three or four most common strains of influenza expected to be prevalent in a given region and season. For 2020-21, the CDC-approved U.S. flu vaccines include types A(H1N1), A(H3N2), B(Victoria), and B(Yamagata). Doctors recommend getting a flu shot to protect yourself against the most prevalent flu viruses.

Treatment of mild flu cases may simply involve drinking lots of fluids, getting plenty of rest, and using over-the-counter remedies such as nasal decongestants and pain relievers. Moderate to severe cases of the flu may require immediate medical attention or prescription medication. Antibiotics do not work against flu viruses. Prescription antiviral medications such as oseltamivir (Tamiflu) can relieve flu symptoms, shorten recovery time, or even help prevent you from getting sick if you take it being exposed to someone who already has the flu. If you need advice or treatment for flu symptoms, try scheduling an online doctor visit for flu symptoms from the comfort of your home.

Why Schedule an Online Doctor Visit for Flu Symptoms?

Traditional in-person doctor visits are expensive, and in the time of COVID-19 they may be increasingly difficult to schedule and access. Telemedicine technology not only makes consultations with your primary care doctor easier than ever, but also puts doctors and other specialists within easy reach for you both logistically and financially. Video calling a doctor from home is easy, private, and affordable. With SAMI-Aid’s online flu symptoms treatment, you can stay healthy and safe during the cold and flu season. Telehealth visits with board-certified online flu doctors are affordable, accessible, and effective.

SAMI-Aid is a leading telehealth provider offering expert one-on-one health care services, including virtual flu telemedicine treatment. We make it easy to connect to a doctor from wherever you are to consult about your ailments, receive treatment remotely, and more. Our services are offered under a free basic membership with pay-per-visit nurse, doctor, and psychiatrist appointments. We also offer a monthly premium membership which includes two free appointments per month of any combination of general medicine, therapy, and psychiatry.
