With the development of serious complications of influenza, such as chest pain, fever for a long time, or hemoptysis, a person with influenza may be hospitalized. This was warned by a general practitioner, immunologist Irina Yartseva.

“There should be signs of complications. Not just the flu, but, for example, when bilateral pneumonia begins. So that it was not just a temperature or body aches, ”Yartseva noted in an interview with Ura.ru.

The doctor also pointed out that hospitalization can happen after the first signs of influenza appear – after more than five days. However, complications most often accompany immunocompromised people who have problems with immunity.

Earlier, an otolaryngologist, otoneurologist Olga Malchenko warned about the loss of voice due to the flu. According to her, non-operative treatment and rapid spread can lead to this. More read in material Public news service.
