  • I would call and give the symptoms to the nurse and ask if she needs to be seen. Or let them know you want her to be seen. At least to rule out the flu or strep which is going around like wild fire this season.

  • Get some elderberry syrup The FDA criticized the manufacturer of Tamiflu for "overstatement" of claims of efficacy, since blind studies comparing it to a placebo only resulted in a 1.3 day difference. A study on Sambucol (Elderberry) found a 3-4 day difference in duration of symptoms.

    When my daughter had H1N1 in May, her fever lasted about 3.5 days and never went over102.5
