DD1 22mo fever 40 plus shivers no sleep, no food no drink. Hosp said wait 72 hours if fever still bad see GP. Saw Gp said is respiratory tract inf. not s flu as s flu gets bad and not better without medication. Do calpol every 6 hours and alternate w Calprofen so you're givin g every 3. I bought her horrible juice drinks I know she likes just to get her to drink something. She's on the mend now.
Don't you just love the new lunch time postal service! Glad things looking up. Having read separate s flu thread I think dd1 may indeed have had it and will be searching out help sooner if dd2 10 mo (excema/allergies) catches it!
Seema to depend on where you live as to whether they prescribe tamiflu as a preventative measure.. Yes definitely better to go through GP don't bother calling NHS direct. Have you tried Calprofen? DD was not improving with Calpol but calprofen seemed to bring temp down
