3yr old ds has swine flu and ds2whos 8 months started getting poorley and yesterday had gp out and ds2 isl loud breathing and a cough.Chest is clear. Today he is very hoarse, awful cough and when he breathes in deeply he makes a real strain noise in his throat which obviously hurts him. He was put on the baby tamiflu yesterday more of a precaution i think (he has other health probs) i dont want to call doctor out necessarily but wondering if tonnsilitus could be possible? How would you know or ami clutching at straws?
Doesn't sound like tonsillitus. Croup? I'm sure someone will know more thna me, but tonsillitus won't give you a cough, or noisy breathing. Feel either side of his neck- if it's tonsillitus you wil be able to feel two big lumps
idont think croup....doctor yesterday wasnt very helpful tbh...bit like heres tamiflu get on with it. Its the pain that worries me as it sounds very raw and he wakes up every half hour depsite being dosed up to eyeballs with medss
very hard as they have only just got over awful bout of chicken pox aswell. Its strange as when he is distracted (normally by ds1) he is okish.... so he cant be THAT bad?That is what is stopping me ringing doc again
ok,so this doc alot better than the one on sat. He said probable ear infection and probable tonnsilitus!Only 'probablle' because ds2 thrashing around so much in pain for him to get thorough look so he is on anti biotics.Im so glad i went, thanka for all your support
