Right now there’s a rumor that taking ibuprofen makes the symptoms worse, which even the World Health Organization says they’re looking into . . . but has not officially been proven. Still, since the WHO’s involved, maybe take Tylenol for now.  THAT’S the effect of so much information flying around . . . we have to be cautious and still act on tips, because we can’t afford to get things wrong.
