Concerned about your child falling ill with seasonal flu?
Are they experiencing a stubborn fever that won't go away?
The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has recently advised against antibiotics for the current flu epidemic, but some pediatricians are still prescribing them for the flu virus, which can often do more harm than good.
If you're looking for an alternative treatment for the H3N2 infection, then homeopathic treatment could be the answer. Homeopathy aims to improve the child's immunity, which is particularly beneficial during this current flu epidemic that is causing worry for parents
There have been two reported deaths in India due to the H3N2 influenza virus, one in Haryana and another in Karnataka.
The symptoms of the H3N2 virus are similar to those of other types of influenza, including fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, and fatigue. The virus typically causes more severe illness in the elderly, young children, and those with underlying medical conditions.
Preventive measures such as hand hygiene, wearing masks, and social distancing can help reduce the spread of the H3N2 influenza virus and other respiratory viruses.
Mild COVID and mild influenza share many symptoms, but cold symptoms are more common in influenza, while body aches and headaches are more common in influenza. There is no proof that those who have had COVID-19 are at high risk of contracting influenza, as both are independent and separate infections with no link between their occurrence.
Since this is a viral infection, conventional medicines have a limited role, but antiviral medications such as oseltamivir, zanamivir, peramivir, and baloxavir may be prescribed. However, homeopathy has been effective during the last COVID pandemic, and it appears that it could be similarly effective in this current outbreak of H3N2.
Homeopathic medicine is a natural form of medicine that uses highly diluted substances to stimulate the body's healing process. The effectiveness of homeopathic treatment for H3N2 influenza has been reported by many patients, and several homeopathic medicines can help relieve the symptoms associated with this viral infection.

Individuals with chronic illnesses such as asthma, as well as the elderly, young children, and people with weakened immune systems are at a higher risk of developing severe illness from H3N2 influenza. It is also important to note that other viruses like H1N1 and adenoviruses are also in circulation, which can further weaken the immune system.
The H3N2 virus is mainly transmitted through contact with infected pigs, either directly or through their droplets in the air. People who come into contact with infected pigs in farms or households are at risk. The virus can also spread through physical contact with an already infected person. It is imperative to take precautions such as wearing a mask and avoiding crowded places to prevent the spread of the virus. Additionally, practising good hand hygiene can also reduce the risk of infection.
