The cardinal symptoms of the disease can be mentioned as headache, feverishness, a flushed face, and general sensations. An influenza patient has bloodshot eyes but usually no catarrh. The temperature goes up to 40°C and returns to normal after three days; sometimes, there may be a relapse. The pulse is weak and thready.
Medicines & Prescriptions: Hinguleshwar should be taken 120 mg, 180 mg of Godanti Bhasma, and 240 mg of Amritasatva should be taken four times a day with honey.
Diet and Other Regimen: As no digestive disorders accompany this fever, the dietary restrictions are a little relaxed. Even so, soft and easily-digestible foods are recommended.
The patient must ensure that he gets proper rest, and also clears his bowels normally. In case of constipation, a suppository or a mild laxative is recommended.
