What's the latest kid cold going around? Anyone elses child have it?

My Son is 4. Started sneezing a few days ago & I thought it was just seasonal allergies. Last night he ran a fever of 101.6. I gave him baby Motrin liquid (generic) & it brought the fever down. Today it's 99.6. He's eating & drinking normally. No runny nose, no other cold symptoms just a little lethargic. He's just complaining of a little tummy ache. Any Mom's with kids with the same symptoms recently? He's never ran a fever over 100. Just curious, Thanks!

  • So far no, but once a child at school gets sick, then we get out too.

  • In my area bronchitis and upper respiratory infections are going around like crazy. Allergens are also high and you can get a fever with allergies.
