My kids and my hubby had the H1N1. Our doctor said that you keep them home and secluded for 5 days after the last fever and they need REST. Elderberry syrup works. Get some. Brand name SAMBUCOL from the health food store. I don't have time to go into the chemistry of it.
If there is HIGH fever piggy back ibuprofen and tylenol. Children who get dehyrated end up in the hospital. Do you understand piggybacking? Give one med then two hours later give another. WRITE down when you give meds.
H1N1 HAS VERY HIGH FEVERS. Stuffy nose, sore throat, eye pain, skin sensitivity, hair hurts, noise hurts, light hurts, dizzyness, lightheadedness, "Mommy syndrome" meaning (I want mommy CONSTANTLY.....and that was from my HUSBAND!) The fatigue lasts for days. Then, it is gone.
