In brief: Fluids, NSAID, aceta
Rest, fluids, aspirin, Ibuprofen or naprosyn (naproxen) (nsaids), and/or acetaminophen.
Be careful if liver trouble with acetaminophen; no Aspirin or nsaids for kiddies; nsaids can cause gastrointestinal inflammation, ulcers, bleeding uncommonly. Read the labels. Check with your doc if any question, health issues or concerns.

In brief: Hysterectomy?
Hi, there is not a youngest age to have a hysterectormythis surgery is the removal of the uterus not the ovaries or tubes.
It would be very rare that this surgery would be done in a women who is her childhood teens, twenties.But a very large tumor, cancer could cause removal.Hysterectomies don't need to be done as much for excess bleeding, fibroids+ there are other methods-not requiring surgery.

In brief: Pain of cold/flu
Rest, do not go to work, school.
Take care of yourself. Have a friend help you with children and pets. Drink plenty of fluids, otc remedies like acetamninofen, non-steriodals can help discomfort--but not if you are allergic or have sensitivities, and not for certain viruses. For flu, tamiflu, (oseltamivir) in the early stages can shorten the duration;that is rx from dr. For flu, prevention with a flu shot=best.
