I just dont ebelieve this...he woke up this monring full of cold and a temperature. He isnt off his food but is very running nosed and blocked up. HIs throat is up as well but no white blobs on it.

Im giving him nuerofen and calpol, and fluids is there anything else I should be doing/giving? We only have tomorrow left at home before we fly early hours Monday!!!!

Exact same happened to my DD2 before we went to Majorca in July!!! When we got there though she got better very quickly, must have been the shock of seeing the sun that made the germs scarper!
If you're really worried, visit your GP and get a prescription. There are plenty of health centres situated ariound the holiday resorts and they are all clean and state of the art with English-speaking doctors, so i wouldn't worry.

cant get a perscription as its Sunday and we go at 7am tomorrow.

Had a fairly good nights sleep woke at 3am but gave more nuerofen, seems perky this morning. Like I said not off food so amd hoping its just a 2-3 day cold etc....

Fingercrossed!

go would not give prescritption unless was chest or ear infection or the like.
Treat with calpol,nurofen. I would prefer medised to calpol as it contains decongestant which will help ease the snuffles and make him sleepy.

If he deteriorates, then contact a doctor over in Majorca.

Relax, enjoy x
