    WWYD? Fever and Cough

    I know whatever 15 mo dcg has, she is likely past the contagious stage. I'm not worried about exposure at this time. However, she has a terrible cough, is laying on my couch and crying every time she hacks. She's saying, "owwwww" and holding her chest with every cough. I think she needs to see a doctor. Her fever is low - 100.5.

    Would you guys send her home?

    I would. If a child can't keep up with the regular routine and she is crying because she is in pain, she needs to go home to rest and possibly be seen by a doctor.

    Sounds like a chesty cough. Poor thing. As everything is connected via the sinus' she probably has a little infection related to the cold and cough and its causing the fever. Needs to be home resting with lots of fluids. I pray to god another dr doesn't prescribe antibiotics for another's cold. It's no wonder cold and flu season just keeps getting worse and worse. Poor little thing

    My husband who is normally as strong healthy guy has had since Dec 30 flu, bronchitus, walking pnemonia and now rebound pnemonia. These bugs are becoming resistant to antibiotics. Very scary. We are using the natural approach as much as possible.

    Good luck Mimi. That sounds terrible. Your poor hubby. I got hit with a cold on Sunday. Monday was worse with a nasal drip and now it's all dried up. I swear by sambucol which is black elderberry extract. My whole family has been taking it since my son started with sniffles and a fever on Friday evening and now we are pretty much done. Thank goodness. Also oil of oregano is sometng Ive heard so many people swear by and warm water with honey(preferably local) and cinnamon in it is good for colds. Be well everybody. Spring will be here before you know it :-)

    where I am, this influenza virus seems to have hit pretty hard, and it only last about 2 to three days for those with a descent immune system, those who are less lucky, it seems to develope into more serious junk like pnemonia, or bronchitis and such. Seems to begin with a runny nose, then headaches, body aches, fever and chills. pain in chest and a cough. They say they are really weak and tired also. then about 3 days later, back to normal aside from a lingering cough.
