My son has been at his dad's today and has been playing with another family member's child. I've just been told that the child has been to the doctors tonight with suspected swine flu. Should I be overly worried that he's been in contact and take him to doctors tomorrow or wait and see?

TIA x

Wait and see. Nothing they will do prophylactically now. Keep an eye and if you want Tamiflu to reduced duration then ring as soon as he developes symptoms (it is only really effective if taken in first 36-48hrs....the sooner the better).

<oh and don't take him to Drs if he shows symptoms. RING GP>
