Got the flu,scared of relapse


My girlfriend has the flu i think (sore throat,fever,running nose),and we are scared it might trigger a relapse.She had her first ever relapse last month,and we are not sure if this makes it difficult for another relapse to occur so quickly-any strong views on this?

Also,does anyone have any tips about getting some protection from a possible relapse?

re: article High Time for HiCy?

This is a quote from the article

"He had to be candid with Lovelace: “This treatment may kill you faster than your disease.” Despite the great risks involved—Lovelace would be gravely vulnerable to infections for weeks"

Here's what has been going on:
