  • Let it run it's course. It is going around and there is nothing that can be done. Keep her hydrated.

  • The "bugs" kids are catching lately are lasting longer than they have in the past. If meds haven't been working for her, you just need to let it run it's course.

  • Yup sounds like a bug thats going around Or.........could she have allergies? Keep her hydrated and I think I would take her to the doctors and make sure there isnt an infection.

  • I would take her in. I have been sick for 2 months. Cough and sinus issues. No fever and still able to get around. I went in finally. I have walking pneumonia.

  • I'd take her to get her checked, just in case, however this sounds just like the bug going around now. I have it (going into week 3) and both my kids have it (going into week 2)...yay. o.O

  • My son was sick for about 3-4 weeks. It started as allergies, but then it became a sinus infection, so I knew he needed antibiotics. I'm not big on them, and he's never had to be on them before, but I knew he wasn't getting over this himself. They gave him a 5 day course and a perscription for Zyrtec that we used for a couple days. He got better immediatly. I usually let things just run their course, but sometimes they need a bit of help.
