Mini flu

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

We aren't into the flu season quite yet, but there are things popping up that are already making people miserable.

Dr. Patrick Woodward is treating something he is calling the "mini flu."

It is a virus that behaves similarly to the flu.

Symptoms of the mini flu are high fever, aching body, headache and head congestion. The only difference is there is no productive cough.

Initial treatment is aimed at minimizing symptoms. If symptoms are severe or persistent, please see your healthcare provider.
