question about swine flu?
somone i know has just come back from mexico, i haven't seen him but i've seen someone that's seen him, what are the chances do you think of it spreading to me if he had it?
i think he feels fine but i'm worried because i have a really rubbish immune system, someone coughs on me and i've got flu.
what are the chances do you think?

I would go to doctor on Monday if you don't recover by then. good luck

Here are the symptoms of children and adults for swine flu.
In children emergency warning signs that need urgent medical attention include:

* Fast breathing or trouble breathing
* Bluish or gray skin color
* Not drinking enough fluids
* Not waking up or not interacting
* Being so irritable that the child does not want to be held
* Flu-like symptoms improve but then return with fever and worse cough
* Fever with a rash

In adults, emergency warning signs that need urgent medical attention include:

* Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
* Pain or pressure in the chest or abdomen
* Sudden dizziness
* Confusion
* Severe or persistent vomiting

These are the symptoms, and i don't know what happens. See a doctor, try not to infect anyone, and hope your body will fight it off if you have it, but its not likely. The Swine Flu isn't as bad as you think it is. The normal flu kills a ton of people, and the media is just trying to freak you out so that people will watch/read the news. But still, contact your doctor if you have the symptoms from above.


Very slim, but just to be safe wash your hands after you make contact with him or even take a bath. Honestly though the chances of him carrying swine flu are slim to none.

The only reason 5000 Mexicans died is because they were poor and had no healthcare. As long as you have good healthcare, you don't need to worry about it.

stay away no trying to be nice becasue it's you that you'll suffer, the chances you'll get it is high

go and have a check up with your doctor, you are like me
my immune system is shot if it's about i catch it, but i have
a reason my kidneys have had it and waiting for transplant

just bring hand sanitizer and if he ever sneezes or coughs on you, immediatly take that sanitizer and apply it to the contaminated area. it should disappear.

Your chances are miniscule. Probaly more risk in a crowded stuffy place like a plane,a lift or the cinema.

ask the doctor for some oinkment if you're worried!

How does this new H1N1 virus spread?
Spread of this H1N1 virus is thought to be happening in the same way that seasonal flu spreads. Flu viruses are spread mainly from person to person through coughing or sneezing by people with influenza. Sometimes people may become infected by touching something with flu viruses on it and then touching their mouth or nose.

What should I do to keep from getting the flu?
First and most important: wash your hands. Try to stay in good general health. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food. Try not to touch surfaces that may be contaminated with the flu virus. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

I would just be wary. Your best bet is to wait a bit to hang out with him, make sure you're washing your hands relatively frequently. Probably tell him you're a bit concerned so he can take some preventative steps for himself, too.

it is transferrable easier from person to person like hte typical flu...but doesn't last more than 2-3 hours on objects...just if your worried keep a little purrell in your pocket...does the job

Sharon M.
I know he's a friend, but I'd be careful.
I'm not saying you should avoid contact with him(or show up in a bubble suit when you do see him), but try not to have too much close contact. If you two shake hands or anything, just wash your hands and don't touch your face until you have.
Don't get sick!! :)

taxed till i die,and then some.
Anything is possible.

If you get it, you get it. Posting a question won't help you at all. You will just get a load of dopey answers from dopey people. There is no indication to date that swine flu is any worse than ordinary flu. If you get it you will probably feel ill and get over it. If it's going to kill you, you will die. But then crossing the road carries similar risks.
