Getting better

Practical advice for illness

The HSE has lots of advice on helping you with common conditions like colds, flu, earaches, sore throats and tummy bugs on www.undertheweather.ie 

Developed in partnership with GPs and pharmacists, it gives users clear and practical information on how to manage a range of common illnesses for both adults and children.

You will find out how to treat the condition yourself, how to get better – and when you need to ask for expert help.
