When you’re getting into a bout of fever and you notice a rash, it’s probably time to get the antifungal medicine you need.
But when your fever is high enough to trigger a rash you may not need it.
Antibiotics are among the top drugs people use to treat flu symptoms.
The FDA has not approved a drug for flu symptoms, so doctors will use a combination of the antibiotics and anti-inflammatories to treat people with flu symptoms until a vaccine is available.
Antifungals are also used to treat other serious medical conditions, including psoriasis, arthritis and skin conditions.
But they also come with potential side effects, and some patients may be reluctant to use them.
So how much should you use?
Antifurials like Cipro and Humira can be used as a first-line treatment, especially if you are at high risk of developing flu-like symptoms.
But even a couple of doses may not be enough to treat everyone who has a fever, and it’s not clear how well a given dose of antibiotics will be absorbed, according to Dr. Roberta D. Leggett, an infectious disease specialist at the University of California, San Francisco.
“We can’t really tell the difference between one dose and another dose,” she said.
“What’s important is that the drug is effective enough that you’re not experiencing any side effects.”
Dosage for flu-related illnesses can vary widely depending on your symptoms, how long you’ve been ill and the severity of your illness.
Antihistamines like Prozac and Zoloft can help you to feel better and help you feel less sick.
They are not recommended for use for all people, but are especially helpful if you have a history of flu-associated symptoms.
You might be able to use one or more doses of anti-biotics for a couple days before beginning to feel well, and then decrease them to just one dose a day.
But a new study by researchers at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and Harvard Medical School suggests that you should use one dose of medication every 12 to 16 hours for the first 48 hours after a flu attack.
“There’s a very good argument to say that a single dose is not that helpful, especially for someone with symptoms,” said Dr. Anthony Fauci, an infection-control expert and director of NIAID’s Center for Emerging Infectious Disease.
“But that dose needs to be taken for 48 hours to see whether there are any adverse effects.
So we don’t know yet if that would work for most people.”
Dr. Fauce said it’s important to get a new dose if you’re having more than one flu episode and to keep your flu medications up to date, even if they are only half-effective.
“If you’re using them for three or four days and then they’re starting to do less, maybe you want to try something else, like the first dose,” he said.
The FDA approved Prozac in 2015 for use as an antihistamine to treat the flu, and its combination of drugs, known as fluoroquinolones, have been shown to reduce flu symptoms in some people.
But the drugs don’t work well on everyone, and in some cases can make you more ill than you are.
The new study, published online on Friday in the Journal of the American Medical Association, found that people taking fluoroquine had higher levels of a protein known as C-reactive protein (CRP), which indicates inflammation in the body.
This increases the risk of heart attacks and strokes.
“This finding underscores the need for more research to determine whether CRP and other biomarkers are more or less important in determining the effectiveness of fluoroqualis in treating flu,” the researchers wrote.
“In addition, the use of antihistamines as an adjuvant treatment may pose risks of increased inflammation in patients with flu, particularly if they do not have clear evidence of efficacy.”
