ds2 is asthmatic.since monday morning hes been getting a high temp,runny nose,sore tummy and just general poorliness.but today and yesterday day time he is/was fine,so mainly 5pm onwards and all day monday.dh is saying it might be swine flu(hes a panicker,then i panic that im not panicking!)am i right in thinking that if it was that,that he'd not be ok in the day(hes making cakes out of play dough atm so fine!).dh is panicking because hes astmatic.
plus dd has ear infection and weve all been feeling bit yucky.

Sounds like a cold to me. Save your panic for next time

I agree with you, doesn't sound like he has flu, probably just a cold.

What kind of asthma medicine is he on? When my dd has a cold, we increase her dose of the brown inhaler, to try and prevent her asthma from kicking off.
