My 4 year old son had RSV several times before he was 3; and so we always monitor him very closely when he gets a cold. We give medicine for cough, put vick's on the chest (feet also and then put socks on), and run a humidifier in his room; we even have a nebulizer with medication if he needs it. My question is when do we worry about him having the swine flu, I don't want to be one of those people who panic every time their child coughs; but how do you know ? From what I've read about it, there's muscle aches associated with it, but how do you know if your child's muscles are achy- does a 4 yr old know how to tell you that? If his cough is persistant through the morning hours tomorrow, I will take him to his dr; his cough is usually worse at night when the phlegm settles into his chest. Thank you.Answer Question
