Home care instructions

When your symptoms are mild, you can stay at home. If you are ill, it is important to rest and drink enough liquids. Fever and pain can be alleviated using pain medication available without a prescription (preferably paracetamol).

If you get serious symptoms, such as breathing difficulties, and if your general state of health deteriorates, call the Medical Helpline 116 117 or your health station. In situations requiring immediate treatment, call the emergency number 112. When you call, mention your infection.
