Other than swine flu are there any other nasty viruses around that cause a sore throat? DD2, DD3 and myself have all been ill and I am getting paranoid!

that it could be swine flu as everyone keeps treating us like lepers!

Has anyone else or your DC had a virus which the main symptom is sore throat?

ds had a temp, sore throat,headache and loss of appetite last weekend. He was fine by Tuesday and nobody else caught it. I don't think it was swine flu just some sort of virus.

DD2 already been checked by Dr on Monday, DD3 is not as poorly as DD2 been but I suppose that's because she is only 5 months old and doesn't show it the same.

Poor DD2 barely ate and she is tiny thing anyway, I hate to see them so out of sorts. sad
