I’ve never had a bad flu like the one I had last few weeks. It took 2 weeks for it to go away. I think the main fault was taking anti-biotic for the flu, my body had allergic reaction with this drug. I don’t take medicine of any kind ever. If I get sick, I drink juice, soup and rest to get rid of the flu or cold. This time, the allergy was so bad, it created rash all over my body, it’s horrible looking, although no pain or itches. I was shivering in the first few days, short of breath and extremely weak. Some Contacts and Benadryl did help the fever to come down. This was the worst flu ever. I don’t have flu every year, the last one I had was 4 years ago after I got a flu shot and I never had flu shots before either.
