4 year old daughter with the flu

Posted by   + Show Post

so i've been told this year's strain is the worst in a decade. my daughter hasn't ate much, nor drink much today. she's been coughing but mainly resting all day. she has the fever, and woke up with very dry chapped lips. i took her temperture earlier and it was at 100.1. she keeps complaining that her head hurts and would cry. so i wanna know, when do you take your child in to the er??

This my kids havent had this flu!!thank god-knock on wood but as longa s they are stable no er is needed if your worried call her dr

Quoting lnr187:

 if her fever isn't increasing, give her tylenol or motrin for the head ache. give her lots of fluids, even if she isn't drinking much, keep it by her whenever she needs it. if it lasts more than 24 hours or she's lethargic, call dr and ask what they recommend
