... high fevers?
Tamiflu - My 6yo son came out positive for Influenza A on friday and its monday and he still has?
Added 8 Dec 2014:
My concern are the fevers. Has had 103. Still vomits and we try to keep him hydrated by drinking pedialyte but he hardly eats. We try to give him any foods he likes. He eats a little. Im worried. Should i call his pediatrician? Hes been taking tamiflu since friday.
How high is his fever? Did you know that you can alternate Tylenol with ibuprofen for his fever? Give him Tylenol, then 3 hrs later give him the dose of ibuprofen he should have, then 3hrs later give him Tylenol. The two together seem to work better then either alone. The other thing is don't bundle him up, even if he says he's cold. If his fever doesn't come down with the Tylenol and motrin, then I'd call the dr. If he seems dehydrated call the dr. He can drink pedialyte rather then water or soda type drinks to maintain his electrolytes. Giving him a small amount frequently is good. Because of his fever he should be thirsty. Kids can go without eating for a few days. Give him things like popsicles and jello.
