Thank you. I am posting an answer for you.

Flu is a viral illness and usually self limiting, which means it will go away on its own in few days.

However, if the symptoms persist beyond week to 10 days or if you start developing high grade fever, it clearly means that there is a secondary bacterial invasion and infection (which occurs commonly as a sequele of flu); and for that you need a course of antibiotics.

I am not sure if you had any blood or phlegm cultures taken or not? If not it should be done and antibiotics should be started. Simple blood tests like a CBC/CRP/Procal levels can reliably indicate whether there is bacterial infection or not; and can decide the need for antibiotics.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
