When should you worry?

When should you start to worry that your child has the swine flu as opposed to just a really bad cold? You can't take them to the dr every time they get sick, but how can you tell the difference... Our middle son has a hard time with colds, he had RSV several times when he was under 2 yrs; and he is the one we worry about catching it. I don't know if we will try to get him the swine flu vaccine or not..

  • I will not let my kids get Swine Flu vaccine for sure since it's not really safe. On another hand, how do you know if your kids got it? It's very easy to test it out but at home you just have to check his temperture if it's over 100 degree and even after taking fever relief. Bring him into ER and get him tested.

  • If your child is sick and experiencing the symptoms, not sure what they all are , but you can request the DR test them for it.
