Word! Influenza

Influenza

Say: in-floo-en-zuh

Feeling suddenly feverish, achy, and crummy all over? Sounds like influenza is in your body — the full name for the flu! Influenza is a type of germ called a virus that can make you sick. You'll feel better if you rest, drink plenty of liquids, and ask your parent to give you acetaminophen or ibuprofen to make you feel more comfortable.
