What are the chances he has SF or could everyone be suspecting it just because its the first assumption at the moment?? He says he HASNT got a sore throat, or headache, but he is running a minor temp and he has what looks like a heat rash really, im not too worried but i know next to nothing about the basic symptoms of swine flu!!

There's a symptom checker on the nhs website.

But it doesn't make much difference whether its swine flu or a virus, does it? Keep him comfortable and hydrated, watch for worrying changes (e.g. laboured breathing), watch lots of TV...
