I think my 2 year old has come down with flu. It's too early to call her doctor and we are out of town. Should I take her to the ER?

All the flu talk has me scared but I'm trying not to overreact. I'm treating her with motrin at the moment but should I take her to the hospital or just wait and see?

  • Take her. They're urging everyone to get medical attention at the first signs of any flu symptoms.

  • Take her in asap. Maybe they can get her on some tamiflu.

  • what is going on with her exactly? I think people are jumping the gun on going to the ER when not needed in most cases.

  • Thanks everyone, I got a hold of her doctor and they recommended taking her to the ER.

    She has a fever, a headache, she's achy and kind of shaking and lethargic for her.
