The symptoms of swine flu in humans are quite similar to those of regular flu, and include: body aches chills cough diarrhea (less common) headache sore throat temperature (fever) tiredness (fatigue) vomiting (less common) There are a number of steps that can be taken to help prevent the spread of swine flu: Washing hands regularly with soap. Getting plenty of sleep. Doing plenty of exercise. Managing stress. Drinking liquids. Eating a balanced diet. Refraining from touching surfaces that may have the virus. Do not get close to people who are sick. There are some drugs available that can effectively treat swine flu infection in humans as well as many other types of flu infections in humans. There are two main treatments: Adamantanes (amantadine and remantadine). Inhibitors of the influenza neuraminidase protein (oseltamivir and zanamivir). Most people with swine influenza recover completely without the need for medical attention.
