Re: What does a Pizza Owner do when they are sick with the f
Imagine if everyone every where didnt go to work because they werent feeling100%. I guess I should clarify what you mean by “sick” Headache? Sinus cold? Flu? upset stomach? Hangover? This last time I was sick it was in my sinuses I didnt have a cough I wasnt sneezing nose wasnt dripping I took some sinus medication and in 2 days was back to normal. I asked a doctor friend of mine about this and he said I probably wasnt infectious. He said if people were going to stop the spread of everything you would have to know 1-2 days before you were actually sick and then you should stay home 2-3 days after you feel beter. Of course that wouldnt be possible for most people and not very realistic, so his suggestion was BE CAREFULL, unless you work directly with the elderly or small children then you should take more percautions.His biggest thing was to wash your hands often thats is the best way to stop it from spreading. Here is a “Guide” to if you should go into work or not and remember I said “Guide” Some people will follow it some wont its a personal decision but its good advice either way.
If you are sniffling â€” but not achy, not feverish â€” it’s probably allergies. Get to work!
Sniffling, achy, tired, fever? You’re coming down with the common cold or the flu. You are contagious in those first days so if you have been at work for the first few days it doesnt help to stay away its to late. You are miserable, face it. You’re not going to get much done at work. Also, you will recover quicker from the common cold or flu if you get some rest,
If your clothes are getting drenched, you likely have a fever. (A warm forehead is a very low-grade fever or nothing at all.) When you have a fever, stay home â€” you’re contagious! It’s likely flu or, yes, the common cold. Drink fluids. Stay away from work until you feel better, Horesh advises.
If you have a fever plus white patches on your tonsils (say “ah”), it may be strep throat. It’s highly contagious. You may need an antibiotic. See a doctor!
If it’s a tickle in the throat or it feels like postnasal drip, the cough is probably from allergies or the common cold. Unless you’ve got other common cold symptoms, such as aches or fever, get to work!
If the cough feels deep, makes you short of breath, and brings up green mucus, it’s likely more than the common cold â€” perhaps bronchitis or pneumonia, according to Horesh. See a doctor!
If your ear really hurts, if you can’t hear well, you may have an ear infection. That’s not contagious. Congestion from a common cold can also leave your ear in pain. You need to see a doctor to see which it is. You may need an antibiotic. Ear infections usually don’t go away on their own, she says.
If your eyes are bright red, if there’s creamy white stuff in the corners, if your eyelashes are getting matted, that’s likely pinkeye, which is highly contagious. Don’t go to work. See a doctor for an antibiotic. It’s another infection that needs antibiotic help, Horesh tells WebMD.
Pain around the eyes, top of the forehead, the cheekbones, even the top of your teeth are signs of a sinus infection, but it could be a common cold. Call in sick and see a doctor to see if you need an antibiotic. Next day, you’ll likely be able to get yourself to work since sinus infections aren’t typically contagious
A stomach virus â€” nausea, vomiting, watery diarrhea, aches, low-grade fever â€” can lay you low for several days. For 24-48 hours, you’ll be absolutely miserable. It can take up to five days to recover. Drink lots of fluids, especially water, so you don’t get dehydrated.
For the first day or two, fluids and soup should be your diet. Then it’s soft solids like mashed potatoes, applesauce, Jell-O, toast, and bananas. Slowly get into solid foods like meat. If you eat solid food too early, it just upsets your stomach more.
With food poisoning, vomiting and diarrhea usually occur six to 12 hours after you eat. The time frame is helpful for distinguishing it from a stomach virus. With food poisoning, once you vomit, you feel better. yes you can go to work
Rule of Thumb: If you can hold down food, you can go into work.
Go to work if you sit at a computer all day. But if you’re on your feet, you will have more swelling, so wait until you can walk with little discomfort. An Ace bandage will give support to an ankle so you won’t re-injure it, Horesh advises. Anti-inflammatory pain relievers help most people, even if they’re not in a lot of pain, because they reduce swelling; take it with food so your stomach isn’t irritated.
An ice pack is a good way to reduce swelling without risking stomach problems.
Though headaches can be caused by things like the common cold, if you can’t tolerate noise or light, you likely have a migraine and shouldn’t be at work If you haven’t seen a doctor for your migraines, make an appointment. There’s no point in suffering with them. There are drugs you can take for migraines that start working within the hour and shorten the migraine’s duration.
