My DD has been sick since 6:30 pm on Tuesday. She started running a very high fever. Her fever has gone as high as 104.2 and then down. It would go up and down and break and then get high again. I took to Dr. on Wed. checked for pneumonia by chest xray, it was negative. Thursday her cough got much worse and so did fever. It was not coming down with meds. She also was in pain and dizzy, she threw up as well. Took to emergency. Suddenly she got much better after being there 3 hours. Today she was good not much of a fever, some energy and attitude back, just a constant dry cough. She went to bed at 8pm tonight and been up every hour if not less. Coughing and fever started again and really sweaty. She is very tired. Is there a chance pneumonia developed since wednesday xray, and yesterday ER Dr. saying chest sounded fine? Or this still just symptoms of flu. She was not tested for swine.Answer Question

Cough: measure 2:1 (tsp) of honey to lemon, and administer every three hours
Fever: well of course you want her internal temperature to be lower, so cold foods, "cool" baths, light sheets, ice pack, and take her temp. every hour.
