Hey, your post is quite good and informative. One thing which i would like to share that if your child who is under 16 age, is suffering from this flu then it is advisable that not give aspirin or ready made flu remedies which contain aspirin. First you need to check the label or consult with either pharmacist or with your doctor that medicine is suitable for your child or not. :thumbsup
