He has had a cough for weeks & then it stopped. Started up again with a low grade fever. I brought him in this morning to his Pediatrician & he diagnosed him with walking pneumonia. He gave us a prescription for a children's version liquid (Z-pack) antibiotic. Most likely this is a secondary infection from him already being sick a few weeks ago. I am bringing him back on Monday so the Dr. can recheck his lungs. I forgot to ask what if they don't clear up. He said if he feels OK he can go to school but he has a gag that sometimes he'll throw up phlegm so I'm keeping him home for now.
I was wondering if any of your kids had this & any recommendations you have would be appreciated. Thanks!
