DS 4yo has been ill on and off for about 3 weeks, to be fair I think he has had a couple of viruses on top of each other but hes been ill with this awful coughing/vomiting/temperature/streaming thing for over a week. He's on amoxycillin because the doctor said his eardrum was bulging and he was in pain on wed night. But if anything he's gone downhill, he is as white as a sheet, no appetite and coughing so much he cant sleep. I'm worried. The little one has it too but seems to be coping better with it.

Your poor DS. Wait to see if the ABs kick in.
