Knowing the main cause of these flu’s is extremely important so that they can be treated most appropriately based on the symptoms. Some of the main causes of the flu’s are discussed in the following to give you an idea of how you can prevent and try to avoid them.
Main Causes Of Flu
Through An Infected Person
This is one of the easiest ways the flu can be spread to a person. When a person who is infected with flu either sneezes or talks too close or coughs to the other person, it comes easier for the virus to infect the other person through air.
In this way the other person tends to absorb the droplets infecting them with the virus in no time as well. So it is advisable that you keep a safe distance from those infected.
Various Types Of Viruses
Once you have had flu and your body has overcome the condition, then your body has the protection shield (antibodies) against that virus which caused the flu. But the problem with flu is that there are many strain and types of viruses (type A and B especially) which cause it, and if next time you are infected it is some other strain, your body has to fight it all over again and generate new antibodies. There is no way to detect which strain or the type of virus which is causing the flu.
Indirectly Through The Objects
This is also another most common way a person can be infected with flu. Even if you do not come in direct contact with the person who is infected with flu, if that person has used some object such as the phone, keyboard, etc
and you have used them right after the person, there are high chances that you might be infected with the virus. Hence, indirect infection can also be an equally big problem, so make sure you and your surroundings are sanitized.
Your Own Immune System
You might be having an immune system which is not very strong and is susceptible to catching the virus than others. This means you need to strengthen your immune system, so your body has a better ability to fight with the virus causing the flu. One should also check for other allergies which you might be having, as compared to the others.
Conclusion – Looking After Yourself
The above mentioned are just a few main causes due to which the flu is caused, however there might be some other reasons as well. It is always better that you go see a doctor to get it treated in the right way, as different people might need different type of treatment to deal with it. It is however, always better to try to prevent it and take proper necessary precautions instead of curing, as they say precaution is always better than cure and it is always true.
