RESPIRATORY TRACT INFECTIONS

Treatment

People experiencing respiratory tract infections are generally advised to rest. People with lower respiratory tract infections should visit a doctor if they are 65 years of age or over (this is particularly important), or have/experience any of the following:

  • Blood in the mucus and phlegm on coughing (this may be a sign of pneumonia).
  • A cough persisting for more than three weeks.
  • Weight loss.
