Kansas has recorded outbreaks of influenza in Sedgwick and Douglas Counties. There have been positive flu tests here in Montgomery County. Dr. Gangula with the CRMC Medical Group says there are some anti-viral drugs that can help speed your healing, but you need to begin treatment within 48-hours. He says the cost of the flu medications can be high even with insurance. He says most people will recover on their own in 5-7 days. With medication, you may shave 2 or 3-days off your recovery.
Health officials say it is not too late to get a flu shot.
