I'm sorry, yet another question about swine flu...

We're in an area with a fairly high incidence of swine flu (Glasgow), but so far, so good.

However, ds2 (2.6) suffers from bad fevers. Less so now than when he was smaller, but even with fairly minor infections, he gets very hot, doesn't sweat, seems to hallucinate. So, I'm very worried about how he would respond if he did catch it. Is temperature associated with swine flu likely to be worse still? Am I being overly anxious? I just want to be prepared so that I can respond quickly if I need to.

Thanks for any advice.

I think just be aware of any temp, not sure they are higher than others... I think the come fast though? If he gets one I'd ring GP even with no other symptoms

Thanks, yes you're probably right. I guess it's the speed of the onset that worries me.
