|Abstract||In France, there are large discrepancies regarding flu between the severe disease described by Health Authorities and the disease that people face, considered as usual and benign. Flu prevention is useful, mainly through vaccination. For a well-established influenza-like illness, both individual measures dedicated to the limitation of the disease propagation and symptomatic treatment are to be initiated. Few clinical data are available regarding the most often used treatments for influenza-like illness (paracetamol, homeopathic and symptomatic treatments). The analysis did not show any decrease in the chances of success for patients with more often used drugs, either being under medical prescription, pharmacist advice or self-medication. In front of an influenza-like illness, the recommendations for daily practice can be based on 2 well-defined clinical situations: a specific management for patients at risk, and the influenza-like illness symptoms relief for the others, using a treatment specific for each patient.|
