don't be in a panic Observe the child for 2-3 days - if fever is responding to Calpol,Crocin ( paracetamol) and Child's behavior is not very irritable - and after the fever is down - starts eating and plays for 2-3 hours - you can continue the treatment and consult your family doctor. Even swine flu responds to normal treatment . and patient becomes alright in 4-5 days..Test for swine flu is advised on 4-5 days if patient is not improving and coninutes to worsen. more
Yes - Please get it tested by a qualified doctor. .. . We see increasing number of cases of H1N1 in Delhi/NCR now a days.
We as parents do have tendency to go with the home medicines first but go for a check first and follow doctor's advice on this. more
Please do take her to a experienced paediatrics or GP asap. Symptoms are clearly indicating of H1N1, though normal flu also give similar systems. In parallel get her tested since it takes 24-48 hrs for the results more
