I have had this flue symptoms for the last 4 days - slight

Resolved Question:

I have had this flue symptoms for the last 4 days - slight fever, running nose and coughing. Been taking Day Quil, Ny Quil, Robitussin and cough drops and is getting a little better but the body temperature hangs around 98.5 - 99.6 degree even after taking the medication.
Could I have other issues like pneumonia? How long does it take to shake off a flu? My usual body temperature is about 98.2.

Hello
This is not even a fever
I do not think you have pneumonia.
Flu can last 10 days.
The body temperature is in the healthy range, could be higher with flu.

good luck
