  • Is the fever going down any with tylenol? She could have croup on top of the flu which can lead to pneumonia if you aren't careful. If you're too worried take her to the ER.

  • Is there a free clinic you can go to? My son had a fever Monday and Tuesday that wouldn't go away either, it ended up being an ear infection and I had no idea (he's not quite 4 months so doesn't pull on his ears). Otherwise try to take him to the clinic, they will try to work out payment plans with you later. You need to look out for your child.
