    GP (General Practitioner)

    The flu is usually treated by relieving symptoms. You should get lots of rest, drink plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration, and manage other symptoms with the appropriate medications. Antibiotics do not treat a cold or a flu. They are only used to treat bacterial infections and the flu is a virus.
