  • My niece is going thru the same thing. Doc keeps saying Viral Infection. They finally put tubes in her ears and it has helped quiet a bit..

  • If they haven't been exposed to a lot of different kids/germs via a day care - yes it is.

  • Yes it's normal!! It is also normal for the kids to get sick every fall-winter once they start school as well (and don't be surprise if it cycle through your house more then once too).

  • Yes, unfortunately. I am a special ed teacher in a small school district, and since we don't have enough resources to run a full special ed department in each school anymore, I now have to travel around the different buildings. This is the first year I've done it, and I have been sick CONSTANTLY. Lovely isn't it?!
