In brief: Chicken Soup!

If you truely have influenza and are in generally good health, you should get over this with minimal assitance in 3-7 days.
Some medicaitons if started early may shortent he lenght of illness by 24-36 hours. Fluids, fever controllers and rest are usually all that is needed. If older, sicker, immunocompromised or other health issues and feeling sicker, get checked. Get a flu shot every year.!
