  • She can have both Tylenol and Motrin for fever
    Give Pedialyte to drink until she is able to keep things down, do very small amounts, such as a table spoon every 15 minutes.
    If she can drink and keep things down only give her foods that are part of the BRAT diet... Banana's, Rice, Apple Sauce, Toast (or any breads, pasta, potatoes)

    If she shows signs of trouble breathing or starts getting dehydrated bring her to the doctor ASAP, otherwise just keep an eye on her at home

  • It doesn't sound like swine flu, but there is a danger of dehydration- not having enough liquids in her body. I'd take her to an urgent care clinic or call the doctor on call.

  • I'd call her doctor and see what they recommend. I wouldn't worry about swine flu, or really WHAT it is. Its probably some nasty virus. All you can do is treat the fever and ached with tylenol and/or motrin, and keep her hydrated. As long as she's not showing signs of dehydration and doesn't have a fever over 104, its safe to keep her home.
